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 an elegant vintage religious statue. It is a tall, slim monk holding a candle. His head is bowed in prayer and his expression is humble. The artist has used minimal detailing and long flowing lines to give this piece a sense of motion. One can imagine this monk waking for Matins on a cold winter night to pray the Divine Office.
The piece is signed by the artist.
Condition: There are some light scratches. Please see pictures.
This is a magnificent vintage religious statue perfect for a home altar or church. It is a copy of Michelangelo's famous Pieta housed in St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City. The plaster statue shows the Blessed Virgin Mary with Christ’s Corpus draped across her lap. It is a profoundly moving piece.
Condition: There are some ships in the paint on the base. Please see Pictures.
This is a vintage statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Our Lady is shown gazing demurely down at a beautiful, large rose blossom in her hands. The statue is painted in soft pastels that highlight the color of Mary's cheeks and are reflected in the color of the rose. Magnificent.
This is an exceptional example of mid-century modern religious art. It is a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary cradling an infant Christ. Our Lady is wearing long voluminous robes and a veil as she gazes down at the swaddled Baby. Although there is very little detailing, the piece is alive with motion. Gorgeous!
