Standing about 25″ tall, this is a dense hardwood carving of a female saint, possibly Saint Teresa of Avila. From the Philippines, late 19th to early 20th century. Quite heavy and substantial. Condition: Most of the polychrome has been lost. A previous owner has cleaned it up wonderfully to show the antique wood finish. Comments: Accomplished by an experienced, but not expert, carver. You’ll have your own opinion but I just love this piece. While the size and heft are impressive, the wood is beautiful. The base has an intriguing shape and brings in a little color. 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
