"Rare Statue Of The Child Jesus In Majesty On Silver Clouds XVIII Eme Century"
Rare and interesting statue of the infant Jesus seated in majesty on silvery clouds.
one does not often meet this representation of the baby Jesus in clouds in apotheosis.
the child is graceful and the proportions are charming. he really has the features of a little boy and if you look closely at the photos he has sulphide eyes.
the face is lovely and the arms slender.
He wears a loincloth painted in a very beautiful polychrome besides all the polychromy is original.
it has a metal ring in the right hand. in the back are present four holes with old ankles perhaps to cap it with a halo or a processional canopy, with the ring in the right hand and this system of ankles present in the back we can easily imagine that this baby Jesus was also a statue that we took out in procession and that we could clothe according to religious festivals.
he is seated on silver clouds, themselves placed on an original gilded wooden plinth. the whole is superb and quite unusual.
take a good look at the work of the silver clouds, the lace carved in the lime tree, as well as the baby Jesus.
The gilded wooden base is made of fir.
we left the whole in its original polychromy, so it has a few small gaps in polychromy.
and look again at the photos there are a few small pieces of finger missing.
if you wish, we can restore in the workshop the small missing pieces and the missing polychromy but the whole is very coherent and harmonious as it is.
a beautiful representation of the baby Jesus dating from the first half of the 18th century.
southern work. dimensions: height 36 cm and 14 cm in diameter at the base.
