A wonderfully evocative early carving of the Madonna and Child in limestone. France c. 13th-14th Century.

The Madonna wears a long cape over a belted tunic, the swathes of deeply carved fabric swaddle - connecting her to the child. To the flat back of the piece you can see an amount of original polychrome in red and in places blue. The red garment signifies traits connected with motherhood - love, passion and devotion; blue represents the Virgin’s purity.

Originally created for a niche in a private chapel, or church.

Provenance: previous owner purchased the piece from the esteemed Maurice Braham collection.
