Français : Buste-reliquaire de Saint-Poppon (1626) exécuté par le Liégeois Jean Goesin. Avec le buste dominant de Poppon portant à la main droite la maquette de l’église abbatiale, à la main gauche sa crosse, tandis que sa mitre est déposée, verticalement, à ses côtés, l’ensemble est d’une apparence assez spectaculaire. Plus discret et beaucoup plus fin est le travail exécuté à la base. Une dizaine de plaques en bas-relief relatent les principaux événements de la vie de Poppon. Conservé dans l’église Saint-Sébastien de Stavelot, ce buste-reliquaire a été classé parmi les biens exceptionnels de Wallonie par la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles.
English: Bust-reliquary of Saint-Poppon (1626) executed by the Liégeois Jean Goesin. With the dominant bust of Poppon bearing the model of the abbey church in the right hand, with his left hand his butt, while his bolster is placed vertically beside it, the whole is of a rather spectacular appearance. More discreet and much finer is the work performed at the base. A dozen bas-relief plaques relate the main events of Poppon's life. Conserved in the church of San Sebastián de Stavelot, this bust-reliquary has been classified among the exceptional properties of Wallonia by the Federation Wallonie-Bruxelles.
