Stunning 19th Century Madonna statue, in a patina green silvery bronze color metal. Heavy, and just beautiful, this piece has the patina of time, the bottom has become green over the century. This Virgin is holding the Christ Child, this was most likely sold as a souvenir on the steps leading up to the cathedral as a "grand tour" or pilgrimage souvenir in the late 1800's.
The Virgin Mary has a beautiful serene expression, the Christ child is missing a part of one arm as shown. Made of metal, the base is metal over a core of the old plaster of Paris for weight, this has peeled back on the back of the base. A lovely addition to your collection of religious artifacts, to display in your own home for devotion. Measures 7~1/4" high.
