Statue Virgin Mary With Putti Cherubs Crescent Moon For Sale
Standing a little less than 12" high and about 7" across, this Virgin Mary on crescent moon with putti (cherubim) is an emotionally and aesthetically satisfying expression regarding the mother of God. The traditional blue of the virgin's robe, her resigned expression and the charm of the little angels at her feet have antecedents in the work of the Renaissance greats, the active composition owing to Mannerist and Baroque masters. Piece appears to be signed and stamped, but that may be part of the casting I believe of ceramic material. Close-ups focus on trouble areas on this sculpture including major chips and an arm glued back to the cherub. Very pretty and of value to those who wish to honor our Sacred Mother. There are small nicks or chipped paint (see Mary's nose) throughout. This piece is certainly far from perfect, but the expressive power makes up for it. Starting offer price will increase to at least $32.50 if there are no offers by Sunday.
