No image permeates Christian art as much as the image of the Madonna and child. While Mary may be referred to as “the Madonna” in other contexts, in art the term is applied specifically to an artwork in which Mary, with or without the infant Jesus, is the focus, and central figure of the picture. Mary and the infant Jesus may be surrounded by adoring angels or worshiping saints. General: 8.75″ in height. Condition: The glass eyes are intact and in fine condition. Heavy losses overall to polychrome. The right hand appears to me to be an old replacement; possibly the left hand is original but a bit of residue (viewed from beneath) reveals that it has been glued in place. It once had a radiance attached to the very top, now missing. Losses to both arms and feet of the Christ child. Comments: A nice presence on this. I also like the glass eyes and Mary’s head turned slightly to one side; it softens the inherent symmetry of the pose. Whatever the culture, there can be no more important art than that used as an aid for communicating with the divine. I have always found devotional artifacts fascinating to collect; there is no better way to connect with a past culture than through the objects that were important to it. Collecting santos figures is particularly gratifying. The subject, the style and the methods of production combine to tell the tale of what the individuals in that culture valued. ____________ I have been collecting artifacts and religious objects for many years, specializing in Asian and European vintage carvings. Don’t hesitate to ask about other stock that I might have that is not listed here. Website: http://sirraffles.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SirRafflesArt
