This is a carved wood 19th century Nuestra Senora de la Soledad (Our Lady of Solitude) from Oaxaca, Mexico. She is the patron saint of Oaxaca. It stands 10"high (with the crown) x 4.5” wide x 2.5" deep and weighs 4.4 oz. Her hands are missing and most of the embelishments on her vestment. She has on her original a tin halo (resplandor) and a crown. Deco on her feet is also tin. She has glass eyes, but the pupils are gone. She has an eerie and mysterious presence some collectors warily look for. She may have been originally in a nicho (a small altar) common with this type of pieces. As much as you want to own one of these, they are very difficult to find. Doll stand is included in the sale.
