St. John Nepomuk

St. Stephen's Cathedral, Passau, Germany

The biretta and the halo with five stars are consistent identifiers in images of St. John Nepomuk, and as a martyr he always has a palm branch. Usually he holds a crucifix, but in this case a simple cross is held for him by the putto on the right. The "John" part of his name has been left out of the inscription on the podium.
