Here is a very unique oak polychrome statue of a bishop in full regalia, holding a cluster of grapes in his right hand, created in the 16th or 17th century, in the area of Cologne (lower Rhineland). The artist is unknown, but collectors have suggested that he might have studied under Tilman Riemenschneider. The bishop may be the patron saint of the wine makers guild. The grapes may also mean the "new" land (Canaan), now heaven.
