18th Century Spanish Santo - St Augustine Wooden Sculpture
Regular price $1,200.00
A gorgeous figure of St Augustine of Hippo, unusually without his bishop's mitre, but in his priestly robes.The workmanship and detailing mark it as Spanish: it's a superb piece of carving, beautifully painted (notice the rendering of the lace borders of the saint's surplice). Some paint has been lost, it bears the marks of its age. Measures 12" tall x 6" across and 4" deep.
