This is a beautiful and rare example of bell-shaped Philippine santos from the southern islands. It is not often that one sees this scarce form in this size and with such a wonderful patina. It is possible that the figure itself is older and mounted on a later, still old, base. I am attributing the age to the base and not the figure. The style is known as “bell shaped” and this likely comes from the southern part of the islands General: 21″ in height. Carved wood. I see slight evidence of old poly-chrome but it was once almost certainly fully painted. Philippines. Condition: Fully intact with the exception of missing hands that once held the Child. 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
