This is a wonderful 19th century polychrome painted over gesso carved wood image of the Santa Maria Immaculada Concepcion or Immaculate Conception. Provenance is Central America, but exact provenance (Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, etc.) cannot be ascertained but the style suggests it is Central American. The colors light blue, blue and white are common during the early 20th century which is probably the time that this piece was repainted. Inspection of the piece indicates that the original paint is very deep blue, gold gilt estofado style and vermillion. She exemplifies the traditional posture with her hands clasped in prayer, standing over a cloud, stepping on the head of a snake biting an apple. She has a newer 12-star silver metal halo imported from Italy.
Some portions of the existing paint has been restored including the face. See pictures. She has glass eyes and some eyelashes remaining. She is a larger piece suitable for a devotional altar or simply to add to any collection. Please let us know if you want additional info or pictures.
