Antique Spanish Virgin And Child Santo, 1800.s
An exquisite and extremely rare antique Spanish santo of the Virgin and Child, 19th century.
This fantastic santo was discovered at the beginning of July of 2021 and it originates from the northern part of Spain. Refered to as the "Virgen del Carmen" this devotional statue is of exceptional beauty as well as a great quality of artistry and craftsmenship that went into its creation. Both figures [Mary and Child] are hand carved from wood and painted. The eyes are made of glass. They are dressed in luscious hand made velvet garments that are embroidered with goldwork and adorned with bullion trims. The statue of Mary is embellished with original crystal earings and a brass crown with a sunburst halo of silver stars. The santo measures about 67 x 26 x 23.5 cm or approximately 26.4 x 10.2 x 9.2 inches and it is in great antique condition with minor signs of ageing that in my opinion only brings forward its true majesty and splendour today. This is truly a magnificent treasure, remarkable in its beauty, condition [for its age] and a wonderful artistic expression. It is exactly as I discovered it. For the full condition please refer to the images!
