1700s Rare Madonna Santos Virgin Cage Doll

Sold out
Item number: DIV-456

We are proud to offer this extremely rare very hard-to-find Santos Madonna from the early 1700-1750's Madonna virgin of Sorrows, beautiful santos figure in carved and polychrome wood. these are very hard to find figures, they were usually ordered by the upper bourgeoisie that required them for their private chapels.

This Santos Cage Doll comes from Catalunya Spain and is still in really perfect condition considering this one is around 300 years old.

This particular Madonna was probably covered with veils and holes for a religious crown, that's the reason why the sculptor did not add molded hair. It has real glass eyes and has a lovely patina.

Under the majesty of silk dresses, crowns, symbols and other attributes made of gold or silver, these images hide a primitive, coarse and disproportionate skeleton of wood,  which is simply irresistible.This is a real museum piece for the serious collector, the accessories shown in the pics are not included.

Size: 24.02 inch x 8.59 inch
