This handsome antique carved wood polychrome santo depicts a monk, classically garbed, barefoot, and holding a bowl at his chest.
The saint measures approx 10-3/4" tall. He stands on a 2-1/2" x 2-1/4" base. He is lightweight at just over 1/2 pound.
Condition: minor paint chips that show the original under layer of gesso, some old worm holes in the wood, typical scratches and rubbing to the saint's surface, age crackling to the paint, the gold paint along the sleeve edges may be a later touch-up (I'm not sure about this but thought it was worth a mention).
