|Title||:||Antique c1900s Classical Style San Vicente Ferrer Religious Santo|
Santos are various religious art forms found mostly in countries colonized by Spain consisting of wooden or ivory statues that depict various saints, angels, or Marian titles or one of the personages of the Holy Trinity. Icons and other religious images were crucial for the conversions of indigenous peoples to the Roman Catholic Church.
Up for sale is this lovely representation of the beloved St. Vincent Ferrer done in the classical style characterized by his beautiful symmetry and proportion. He is easily identified here with his iconic pose. It appears that he once had tin wings (another one of his iconic attributes) but these were lost over time. He is painted in blue and silver, with the latter appearing to have been added later on by the previous owner. An overall marvelous piece sure to be a great addition to any antique collection.

|Condition||:||In Good Condition|
|Weight||:||Item weighs approximately 500 grams|
