This magnificent baroque Sculpture depicts Jesus Christ. It was once mounted on a Cross of a Crucifixion Scene. Jesus only wears a cloth around his hip which has the typical baroque movement. He also has the Crown of Thorns on his head. The detail of the sculpture is simply stunning. The features of the face - including the beard - and the muscles and bones make it look almost real. The Polychrome Finish might have been touched up in former times, but underlines the beauty of the statue.
The statue was carved by hand out of Lime Wood in the second half of the 18th Century. It comes most likely from France.
The Stature is in very good condition. It has a beautiful patina and comes un-restored with its Polychrome color. (PLEASE SEE PICTURES)
It is circa 12 Inch tall by 7 1/2 Inch wide by 1 3/4 inch deep
