The issues concearning the object I have chosen are extremely complex, but in this thesis I will restrict myself to perform a technical and easthetic conservation and make an attempt of dating the object (on the basis of the conclusions driven from previously conducted research and analysis). As part of sculpture's conservation it will be closely examined in order to gather information that may help to determine the time frame in which the figure could have been made and to define its style. In the technical and aesthetic consevation I will mainly try to strengthen the object and provide the reconstruction of missing parts to such an extent that it will be able to fulfill its initial function during the Easter time and can be properly exposed in the course of the liturgical year.
