This veiled woman’s head in polychrome molasse, discovered in Romainmôtier (Vaud), in the priorale church, dates back to the 14th century. Between about 1330 and 1450, several exceptional religious personalities chose to be buried in the Cluniac convent of Romainmôtier, such as Guillaume de Montricher. His funerary monument only exists today in the form of fragments. During the excavations of the eastern wing of the cloister in 1986, a burial vault was unearthed containing bones, a few personal objects and about 600 sculpted fragments that can be linked to the de Montricher family thanks to the presence of a coat of arms on one of the figures. This woman’s head belongs to this group. Her triangular face with half almond-shaped eyes is encircled by a wimple around her neck, an accessory reserved for ladies of quality, and by a veil that exposes her high forehead; the combination of these two elements designates a married woman or a widow. Height: 25 cm. Scan by Onsitu.
