General: The subject of this devotional wood carving is St. Vincente de Ferrer (circa 1350 A.D. to 1419 A.D.), one of the great peacemakers of the Church. It stands at 12.5″ in height. Condition Report: Polychrome losses, as shown. Cleaned with some restorations. Statues of St. Vincente sometimes originally included a pair of wings; they are missing here (as they normally are) but nail heads are visible. Tips of two digits missing. Comments: St. Vincente stands very erect, sometimes intended to show a saint’s righteousness. He points to heaven with his right hand, a book pressed to his lower chest with the other. 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.
