Nottingham Castle Christmas Countdown Clock: Day 10

Welcome to the Nottingham Castle Christmas Countdown, where each night, we’ll be sharing an item from the world-class collections in the Castle’s Galleries in the lead up to Christmas.

Alabaster panel: Adoration of the Kings, c.1460 NCM 1954-38
Adoration of the Kings, c.1460 NCM 1954-38


Tonight’s object is this alabaster panel from the Castle’s world-famous Nottingham alabaster collection. The panel depicts the Three Kings bearing gifts for the Virgin Mary’s child. Although damaged, repaired and retouched, much of the original colour remains.

Thanks for joining us and make sure you come back tomorrow for the next instalment in the Castle’s Countdown Clock!
