This Italian marble statue of a praying child is from the 1800’s. The artist who hand-carved the carrara marble was well versed in human anatomy, accurately presenting the child’s purity.
The child is depicted genuflecting with the left knee on slightly textured ground and hands clasped in front of the chest. Barefoot and without clothing, except for gathered fabric that drapes over the right thigh, the youth is looking upwards with an innocent countenance surrounded by long curly hair. The square plinth beneath has thick cavetto molding. Our 19th century carved marble statue of a praying child can be placed on a pedestal or table, making a fabulous accessory.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with minor nicks and age separations. Light buildup, especially to the hands. The statue has developed a gray patina from exposure to the elements.
