Antique Bronze bust of Saint Mary Magdalene. The sculpture is artfully crafted with beautiful expression and detail. It has a beautiful golden patina and is in perfect condition. It is dated at ca. 1900.
Note:Saint Mary Magdalene sometimes called simply the Magdalene, was a Jewish woman who, according to the four canonical gospels, traveled with Jesus as one of his followers and was a witness to his crucifixion, burial, and resurrection. She is mentioned by name twelve times in the canonical gospels, more than most of the apostles. Mary's epithet Magdalene most likely means that she came from the town of Magdala, a fishing town on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee.( Wikipedia)
