This is a remarkable set of antique sacred art prints. Each piece is a polychrome lithograph framed by an elaborate embossed paper arch. The images are Saint Joseph & Christ; a young Jesus; and Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque.
The first image is a youthful Jesus. He is shown in a setting full of Catholic symbolism. Our Lord has a cross leaning on His shoulder with a crown of thorns hanging from the top. There is a large chalice at the foot of the cross wrapped in grapevine. To one side of Our Lord is a rock, symbolizing Golgotha, with three nails. In the background are large plantings of grapes and wheat, symbolizing the Eucharist. Magnificent!
The second image is of Saint Joseph holding a young Christ in his lap. The two are holding hands while Jesus holds a spray of lilies in one arm, the symbol for purity, often associated with Saint Joseph.
The third image is Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque kneeling before Christ. He is shown pointing to His Sacred Heart. His hands are dripping blood and light is radiating from His heart and His hands. This is a representation of her vision when Christ instructed her in the devotion to His Sacred Heart.
The rich colors of each print are enhanced by the gold painted arch frame. The paper is quite thick, almost cardboard, and is deeply embossed.
Condition: Some of the topmost points are missing from the arches. Please see pictures.

Condition: There is a small chip on the planter which can only be seen from the top. Please See Pictures.
This is a stunning antique engraving of the Crucifixion, showing Our Lord on the cross gazing toward heaven. The scene is entitled “Le Calvaire” (or Calvary) and is signed by B. Wicker with the notation “D’apres Van Dyk” meaning it was engraved in the likeness of a Van Dyk painting. Magnificent.
