  • Remarkable European Intricately Carved Sculpture of a Saint | Likely dated between 18th & 19th Century or earlier | This beautiful original hand carved statue has meticulous detail, depicting a Christian Saint holding a book facing out in his left hand (presumed to be the Bible), with his right hand raised outward in the traditional renaissance gesture of blessing |  This masterful sculpture was painted originally, with the dark toned paint having been largely warn away | The statue sits atop of wooden base | Approx. Dimensions: 46″ H x 17″ W x 14″ D | Very Good condition considering its age and use.  The base has a portion of the base cut out – presumably to fit the statue into an existing place in a sanctuary or altar.  The wood (sculpture made up of three large pieces of wood) has some separation along the back of the statue, but these creases are not deep, and the sculpture is very solid and stable.
