Altarpiece of Santiago. Parish Church of Elgeta

In the parish church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción of Elgeta, outside its original place, between the main altar and the sacristy, one can see this altarpiece of Santiago. Although it was believed to be James the Lesser, if we look at the crosier of his right hand we see that it is James the Greater.

It seems that this is the altarpiece having the most Italian influence in the whole province, both going by its architecture and mythological decoration, as well as the classic style used in the images.

This work was commissioned to Miguel Llorente in 1564, and despite the fact that the carving of the right foot was not so well done, this is a very well elaborated image.
