Medieval stonework featuring Saint Maurice at Dom zu Magdeburg St. Mauritius und Katharina from supernaut.info

“Saint Mauritius is the reason I wandered south and west into old Germany. Saint Mauritius, the black knight who appears consistently in mediæval and renaissance art (not as frequently as Balthazar does in Adoration of the Magi),
particularly in northern-central Europe and along the Hanseatic trade
routes (later in Flemish and Dutch art, and spreading across western
Europe and the Mediterranean), had his first known and extant
representation in a stone sculpture mid-late 13th century, probably
around 1250-70, which currently sits in the Hoher Chor in Magdeburger
Dom, opposite his companion Saint Katharina, sculpted by the same artist
at the same time.“
