Antique 1900s San Vicente Ferrer Santo Wooden Statue

Title: Antique 1900s San Vicente Ferrer Santo Wooden Statue
Description: This statue of the well-loved Dominican Saint is quite rare. Obviously of old age, it was carved over one hundred years ago. The patina exudes the warmth of the old world. Expertly carved, the statue is beautifully symmetrical and well-detailed with flowing garments, a testament to the skill of the craftsman. The right hand, which is traditionally portrayed as pointing to the heavens, has been lost over time. The wings, usually made of metal, has been lost as well but does not take away from the overall beauty of the piece and, on the contrary, is just a testament to the piece’s old age.
Measurement: The statue measures 12.8 inches in height and 5.2 inches across
Condition: In Good Condition
Weight: approximately 800 grams
