Antique sculpture/statue San Francis of Assisi, San Francesco
Exceptional detailed large Antique carved wooden Sculpture Statue San Francesco St. Franciscus Assisi with his arms open, around second half of 1800
This magnificent church / monastry sculpture is all hand carved and hand polychrome painted, watch the beautiful details and expression on its face.
This sculpture is provenent from a church in Belgium, Gent ( Flemish )
The carving is solid an all original, some small paint loss but overall in a good condion, only at the back there is a small part of its cape that have signs of woodworm ( see detailed picture) but that has been treated, one finger is missing a very small chip ( see detailed picture)
This is such a great piece that pictures do not do the artwork justice of the true craftwork.
This would be a great addition to your chapel ore church
