This is a wonderful miniature statue. It is based on the famous statue housed at the Basilica of St. Anne de Beaupre in Quebec. There are many miracles associated with the shrine. This statue is of cast metal painted bright gold. Saint Anne is holding a young Mary, and both are wearing elaborate crowns. The most striking feature of the statue is the amazing halo, which is as tall as St. Anne, with rays bursting from swirling clouds.
"S. Anne de Beaupre" is inscribed along the base. There is also a piece of a very old French newspaper tucked inside.
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!
