A rare and beautiful example of an early Italian Processional Madonna.
Late 18th Century/ Early 19th Century.
This wonderful adaptation of the Virgin Mary has the most delicate and refined life-like features.
Her arms are articulated for a variety of poses. She sits almost reclining, and would have been dressed in magnificent fabrics to be paraded through the Town or the City only once or twice a year on important religious dates.
To survive in this condition is rare.
To be so finely modelled with such serene features and deep aqua blue eyes - rarer still.
A truly wondrous collectors piece, and an incredible piece of devotional art.
Approx 4ft 9” in body height.
