19th Century Santos Wax Relik Head
For sale: a very rare late 1800's wax martyr head once part of a life-size sculpture probably kept in a glass showcase in a French Church or chapel/ monastery.
these kinds of figures or heads are very hard to find these days. the head is still in good condition. the removable Back "skull" is made out of a hard material, often seen on these holy Santos heads or figures. the figure is in rest you can see a tiny peace of the eyes between her almost closed eyelids. on her head, she is wearing a holy Santos crown.
She is ver realistic and a very rare curiosity. through the whole in the neck you can still smell the holy incense which makes it even more mysterious.
a must have for the real collector
