Virgen con el Nino Jesus,18th C., Filipino
This piece was carved in the round (single piece of wood) from a fine grained medium heavy yellowish type of hardwood. The only wood damage is a small chip where the right hand was once attached and and age cracks at the front and back of the base. It was once covered with a light green water based paint. We stripped a portion of this paint and thus revealed some of the original paint in hues of blue, red, gold and yellow. The overpaint of light green has actually preserved the original paint from further peeling off. The overpaint was obviously done many years ago by an unknowing owner who obviously do not know the importance of this piece. Overall this is a wonderful piece of art from the past to last for many more centuries.
