This is an amazing vintage statue. Our Lady stands holding a toddler Jesus in one arm and a book in the other. She is strikingly elegant with copious robes that flow around her. Our Lord looks to be 5 or 6 years old, has curly hair, and is nude in her arms. The skill of the artist can be seen in the graceful folds of her robes and the fine detailing on their hands and feet. The entire piece feels animated, as if the artist caught them in motion. Magnificent!
This is made of very subtly colored alabaster resin. It was originally attached to a pedestal and has residue on the base, but can stand freely. Please see pictures.
Condition: There is a small chip in Mary’s veil near her left eye. The statue also needs to be cleaned.
This is a stunning piece of religious art. It is a beautiful image of St. Mary’s Basilica in Krakow, Poland with its two spires reaching towards a dark and stormy sky. The scene is evocative as the entrance is light and inviting protecting those who enter from the coming storm. Wonderful.
This piece is beautifully framed and matted. The artist’s signature is in the lower left corner, but it is illegible.
This is a stunning antique sculpture. It is a highly detailed scene of the Nativity. The focal point is, of course, Our Lord in the manger. The Blessed Virgin Mary is kneeling over Him in prayer while they are surrounded by a host of people, angles and animals. Cherubs are rollicking in the clouds above and the shepherds are in the distant background. The scene is vibrant with excitement and the detail is amazing.
This piece was made in France and is signed “Favier”. We believe it is bronze and dates to the 1800’s. It is housed in a beautiful wood frame and is quite heavy.
Please Note: The bronze has no backing and is loose from the frame. This can be easily repaired.
This is a beautiful religious painting. It is an image of Saint Helena after the famous painting “Saint Helena” by Cima Da Conegliano, c. 1495.
