c900s Antique Colonial Santo Immaculate Concepcion with base

Title: c900s Antique Colonial Santo Immaculate Concepcion with base
Description: Colonial and present-day Filipinos venerate the Virgin in many unique ways. Her titles are plentiful and she is, in fact, the patroness of the Philippines. This wooden carving is done in a style that is quite unique with its oriental features. The carving is symmetrical and simple yet very imposing. There is a long crack on the base, some minor abrasions and lost its arms due to age can be seen throughout. She is believed to be over sixty years old and to have originated, most probably, in or around Manila where there is a significant Chinese population.
Condition: In Good Condition
