Click to enlarge image(s)
This is a 19th century polychrome painted over gesso carved wood image of the Virgin Mary or Virgen Maria. This piece comes from the Northern Provinces indicated by its crown style and the turmeric yellow painted lower base. Paint is original (no overpaint) meaning it has been well preserved over the years. There is a wood chip on her right hand. There is a crack at the left side of the base. Her hands are not original, but they are old probably installed during the turn of the century. Notice that the carving quality of the hands are not as detailed for this piece. The facial features of the Virgin are strikingly Caucasian.
Dimensions: 18” high X 5.5” wide X 5.5” diameter at the base
Weight: 3#, 8 oz.
