Vintage Feri Italy Carved Wood Figure Wayside Roadside Shrine Crucifix Anri Era For Sale
Please scroll down under this description for additional views. Hand carved and painted wooden statue of a roadside shrine in Italy with a woman praying at the base. 9 3/8" tall, 4 1/4" wide, 3 1/2" deep, retaining a paper label from FERI Company in Italy. It is very similar in style and quality to Anri pieces. The wood is left in a natural stained state except for the colorful painting on the woman who wears what might be considered a traditional country or peasant outfit. I saw some wonderful photos on a Google search that were taken of various wayside shrines in the mountains of Northern Italy and also in Austria and this piece captures the feel and style of the humble wooden shrines that were erected for pilgrims and travelers. There is a little sliver on the side of one od the hand rails that is missing and the wood underneath shows lighter.
