Antique Santo Large Bust of Christ, Religious Wood Carving 25” (SOLD)

Title: Antique Santo Large Bust of Christ, Religious Wood Carving 25”
Description: Bust of Christ - This Baroque inspired bust of Christ was made from baticuling, a native wood from the Philippines. Just like the other wooden specimens representing Christ, this one evokes an aura of tranquility, which is typically Filipino. Local artisans and carvers give emphasis to a more subdued appearance rather than the more garish ones preferred by Europeans. Tints were used as facial highlights. Due largely to age, minor abrasions, cracks and a hole in the head are present. It is believed to be more than a hundred years of age and probably come from Central Philippines.
Measurement: It measures 25 inches in height and 11 inches across.
Condition: In Good Condition
Weight: Item weighs approximately 5,300 grams
