Antique, Century Old Virgin Mary, Immaculada Religious Carving, Antique Statuette, circa 1800s

Title: Antique, Century Old Virgin Mary, Immaculada Religious Carving, Antique Statuette, circa 1800s
Description: Popular throughout the Philippine Islands, the only country in Asia with a predominant Christian population, these carvings or santos as they are locally called can be found in many homes. While santos are widespread throughout the country, older examples such as this one are increasingly harder to come by.
This carving of the Virgin Mary is done in the popular folk style characterized by its somewhat crude and simple appearance. It appears to have some minor repairs where the figure meets the base but this is not at all noticeable and, indeed, is almost invisible.
A truly old and lovely example perfect for any home interior as a decorative element or as an added piece to your antique collection.
Measurement: It measures 10.3 inches in height and 4.5 inches across.
Condition: In Good Condition
Weight: Item weighs approximately 250 grams
