Antique French Madonna Statue, 1800's
A majestic and extremely rare antique French statue of the Virgin Mary, mid 19th century.
This remarkable Virgin Mary statue was discovered In March of 2021 in the South of France. It is entirely hand carved from wood and gilded. Through the passage of time some of the gilding has flaked away [mainly on the back side] giving it a wonderful timeworn patina of exceptional delight. It is this distressed appeal that in my opinion brings forward even further its true beauty and splendour today. The statue is carved as a standing figure with a base that bears the initials "AM", meaning "Ave Maria". Positioned upon a serpent, with a peacefully alluring expression on her face the Mary is crowned with a stunning floral wreath of gently faded blossoms while holding a garland of roses and lilies. This is a highly poetic treasure of captivating beauty and meaning like no other. It measures about 65 x 22 x 22 cm or approximately 25.6 x 8.6 x 8.6 inches and it is in lovely antique condition, exactly as I discovered it. For the full condition please refer to the images!
This is an outstanding French treasure for a stylish and unique interior!
