Description of the work

Made to preside over one of the side altarpieces of the church of the Dulce Nombre de Jesús, the most striking aspect is the rich decoration of the tunic, in rocaille, in which the author takes special pleasure. As a curiosity, the crucifix that the saint carries in his left hand is a replica of the Santísimo Cristo de la Vera Cruz, patron saint of the Brotherhood.
