Highly collectable, polychromed virgins such as this are becoming rare to find, especially with this much detail.

Lovingly cared for over the years, with repairs and paint added as she aged, she played an active part for a long time in the religious life of a community.There is some wear as is desired of a santos or madonna of this age. She is exemplary, a blessed addition to your collection. Measures: 14-1/4"h  .
