Click to enlarge image(s)
This is a 19th century Portuguese Colonial carved wood figure of the Immaculada Concepcion or Immaculate Conception provenance from Brazil. She is clasping her hand in prayer atop a cloud with three cherubs and a snake holding an apple with its mouth. There is major paint losses at the base area and on her back. It is possible that originally she has a fine estofado finish and was repainted at a later time since there are traces of overpaint at the base. It is a fine carving with no wood losses but only a 1/8” wide age crack at the base. She has piercing glass eyes. She has a hole on top of her head where her resplandor or aureole is attached. The aureole is made of unknown metal and is original to the piece (2.25” h x 2.5” w).
Dimensions: 14.0" High (15.5” to top of her aura) x 4.5" Wide x 4.0" Deep.
Weight: 1.0 Lb., 10.5 Oz.
