Vintage Reproduction St. Peter the Apostle San Pedro Religious Santo (SOLD)

Title: Vintage Reproduction St. Peter the Apostle San Pedro Religious Santo
Description: The Santero culture in the Philippines is widely prevalent among Filipino Catholics, having been influenced by colonial Spain and various forms of folk Catholicism. Icons and other religious images were crucial for the conversions of indigenous peoples to the Roman Catholic Church. This tradition has remained strong in the Philippines and as such many wonderful examples can be found today.
This lovely little vintage reproduction of the beloved Saint Peter (or San Pedro as he is locally known) is carved from a single piece of batikuling, a local softwood preferred by carvers in the Philippines. He is said to be the keeper of the Gates of Heaven and is easily identified here with his iconic key.
Measurement: It measures 12.6 inches in height and 5.1 inches across.
Condition: In Good Condition
Weight: approximately 600 grams
