Lovely and rare to find, this Large Seated Christ Child Santo, is beautiful and so sweet with his hands lovingly extended.  Carved of wood and covered in gesso, he has inlaid glass eyes, and is very detailed, including the hair in rows on his head. {the hair is not human hair} Exceptional painting, his hand painted face is expressive, inside his open mouth a small mirror makes it so you can't see inside.

He wears a hand sewn covering of antique metallic embroidered silver bullion lace, and has a silver pierced heart necklace that is accented with a piece of coral, these were most likely added at a later date. From a French collector, but he is most likely of Spanish origin. His gold painted hand carved chair is a later addition. He is anatomically correct and has the remnants of piercings on his foot and legs. He is missing one finger. Display him on any ledge, or shelf, he is a decorative addition to your collection of antique French, Spanish, or Italian religious antiques and vintage figures.

  • Measures 10-1/2"l.
