Antique 19th C. Life Size Religious Church Statue - Wood & Plaster - St. Paul For Sale
This is an original 19th Century wooden church statue. It is made of wood with plaster or gessoover.The figure is a gray haired andheavily bearded man, wearing robes, holding a book in his left hand with his right hand outstretched as if he were rebuking or preaching to a crowd. I'm not 100% sure, but I think it is Saint Paul. It is in unrestored condition and has lots of chips, cracks, paint loss, staining and soiling, as visible in the pictures. Personally, I think this adds to the character of this amazing piece. He stands about 5 feet,5 1/2 inches tall. These statues were carved from a single, large timber. The backs were cut off and removed and they were hollowed out to lessen the weight. They are often found without the back panel attached, revealing the open cavity inside. This particular one retains it's back panel, the outline of which is visible by the separation along it's perimeter.
