Framed Antique Jesus and Mary Catholic Hand Painting on Papyrus

Offering an antique, Catholic painting showing the Virgin Mary and the infant Jesus.

Oddly, the painting was done on papyrus. It is signed down at the bottom, however the signature, apart from being a bit unreadable, is half hidden behind the gold frame.

The painting is quite beautiful in the Greek style, with both Mary and Jesus having fair hair and blue eyes. Their clothing has been accented with gold paint.

The framed work measures 9" X 12". The back is taped over with paper in the old way, and the hanger was a piece of string.

The frame is real wood, carved and painted gold, and while the joints have separated just a bit, the whole thing is still solid.
