Old figure of Christ returned to York

Old figure of Christ returned to York - An 800-year-old figure of Christ that adorned St Mary's Abbey in York is to be returned to the city after nearly two centuries. Made in the 13th century in Limoges, in France the rare object was found in 1826 in the ruins of the abbey. It disappeared for 100 years before it became part of a private German art collection in the 1920s. It was bought by York Museums Trust and will be displayed at the Yorkshire Museum, on the site of the old abbey.
