Stunning Antique Carved Wood Madonna, with her silver crown, glows with the peace and joy only an old religious work of art can have. Fine and exquisitely carved by hand, then hand painted with great care, she is a beautiful elegant addition to your collection of santos and religious art and antiques. Once displayed in a church, she has layers of paint; lovingly cared for over the years, with repairs and paint added as she aged, santos like this played an active part for a long time in the religious life of a community.
Her countenance is ethereal, and befitting the Virgin Mary, the Holy Mother of God. Mounted on a simple wooden museum style stand, she wears her sterling crown with grace. The crown has been repaired by the previous owner, I have left this as is. It is rare to find these decorative polychrome treasures with their crowns intact, I was thrilled to find these two together. The crown is attached with a spike, it is removable. Measures: Figure: 4' x 4' x 10"h Crown: 4-1/2" x 5".
