Exceptionally beautiful, this large Our Lady of Lourdes Madonna is rare to find, made of the old molded plasterwork, painted and gilded by hand. Originally made for a side   chapel dedicated to Mary in a church in France, she has the most beautiful face.  Painted entirely by hand in the soft shades associated with the Lourdes Virgin Mother. Her robe has a hint of softest lavender pink, faded over time, the sash is heavenly blue. But it is her face and expression that make her exquisite. She is on par with the statues we saw last year on our buying trip in the Religious Museum.

She is stunning, painted with the greatest care by an artist in the 1800's in warm, realistic colors with a meaningful and soulful expression. Rarely do these larger chapel Madonnas come available, and in this condition. Because she was in a holy chapel, over the years she would have been "repainted" to keep her from looking shabby. She is missing a portion of one hand, and there are a few chips here and there.

Nothing will detract from her presence, and she will bless all who are fortunate to gaze on her.  Signed in the plaster, Kaff. L. PARIS and imprinted with a gilded Sacred Heart on another.

  • Measures 24"h {5-1/2" x 5-1/2" base}
