Vintage Santo Carving, La Inmaculada Concepcion, Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception

Title: Vintage Santo Carving, La Inmaculada Concepcion, Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception
Description: Marian devotion in the Philippines is tremendous because of the society’s adherence to the Catholic faith. Likewise it manifests its love and adoration to the woman whom Jesus Christ trusted so much. As the mother of God, aplenty of local artisans, sculptors for that matter did their part by producing masterpieces of art in a form of sculptures. This image patterned after those in Europe has a localized touch. Tints were used to give highlight to its appearance. It is late baroque inspired, giving much detail to the face and the bodice. There are some minor impurities but less than that it is in good condition. It is believed to be more than forty years old and probably come from Manila.
Measurement: It measures 16 inches in height and 6 inches across.
Condition: In Good Condition
Weight: approximately 1,500 grams
