Maulbronn Monastery

Choir stalls: Sacrifice of Isaac The choir stalls dating from around 1450 are richly decorated. The carvings point to the circle of the Ulm sculptor Hans Mulscher. The monks had 92 single stalls at their disposal, with separating walls between them.

The sacrifice of Isaac as a dramatic event: Abraham's son prays as he awaits the deadly blow from his father. Suddenly God intervenes through an angel. In the right corner the sheep.
