Comments:

If date is correct, made by Ignaz II, as father died in 1769 (per Lütgendorff, citing burial documentation). Body length must be longer than 90, given these widths: more likely c. 120 (cf. SALZ 8 = Mayr, 1722). Alicia Knast: probably acquired for the monastery’s famous Cappella; vague memory of seeing it in a poorly-lit glass case in 2005.
