The Prophet Ezekiel

Plaster, life-size
Benedictine Abbey Church, Zwiefalten

Johann Josef Christian, like Joseph Anton Feuchtmayer, another sculptor in Upper Swabia in the mid-eighteenth century, used plaster as his main sculptural medium. He occasionally collaborated with Johann Michael Feuchtmayer, and owed his considerable reputation to his work at the abbey church of Zwiefalten and Ottobeuren.
