Vintage Repro of Child Jesus, Sto. Nino de Cebu w/ Lovely Resin Face

Title: Vintage Repro of Child Jesus, Sto. Nino de Cebu w/ Lovely Resin Face
Description: Icons and other religious images were crucial for the conversions of indigenous peoples to the Roman Catholic Church, which was itself an integral part of the Spanish colonization of the Philippines. Although the Spanish Occupation has ended over one hundred years ago, the santero culture in the Philippines is stronger than ever. One of the more beloved icons in the Philippines and, indeed, the world, this depiction of the Child Jesus is done in the popular style characterized by the somewhat cartoonish and disproportionate appearance common in many folk carvings throughout the world. Carved from hardwood and accented with a resin face, this charming piece is sure to be a great addition to any santo collection.
Measurement: It measures 13.8 inches in height (including the base) and 7 inches across.
Condition: In Good Condition
Weight: approximately 1,600 grams
