LARGE 43 RARE ANTIQUE HAND CARVED WOOD OUR LADY MARY MADONNA & JESUS STATUE. Authentic and genuine from Germany!
More details about it below.. Please view the photos as they are part of the description. She is wearing a crown and is standing on the snake. Jesus is holding the orb and is blessing. Both have suffered a lot and look very weathered.
On some parts the whole limescale inclduing the paint has come off allready. The crown is damadged as well.
But still, it has something very special. Her facial expression is full of gentleness and permeates the viewer with piety.
I absolutly love the patina. The statue was made out fo different parts and the sculptor glued it together. It might be hollow and maybe a relic is stored in it like scultors often did back in the days.. A unique contemporary witness of the past.
