St. Eustace

, , ,

Albrecht Dürer, St. Eustace, Paumgartner alterpiece, 1503.

Hat tip to Madame Scherzo who has labeled it “St. Hubert”. The Roman St. Eustace shares essentially the same conversion story with the later St. Hubert of the Ardennes. Both saw a vision of crucifix between the antlers of a hunted stag. Both are patron saints of hunters.
