This endearing hand carved wooden statue depicts a large central angel, flanked by two winged cherubs. The angel is touching the hand of one cherub and the top of the head of the other as though protecting them. They are standing upon a platform with stylized circular clouds swirling around them. The tall angel wears a robe with tassels draped over his shoulders and tied at his waist. The winged cherubs are shown as full figures, which was often seen in the 18th century as well as during the Renaissance. In the Baroque period, they were often shown only as winged cherub heads. The piece is of Western European origin, possibly the Netherlands, Belgium, or Germany.

At nearly 4 feet by 4 feet, this statue is of a particularly large size, especially considering it is a figural grouping. The back of the piece is a series of plain, horizontal boards in pine. It was likely attached high on a wall, or possibly part of a much larger altar piece. This magnificent carving will be the focal point of any room it is placed in.

CONDITION: Good, stable condition with old restorations and repairs throughout (fingers, etc). Holes at either end of the platform where it was once secured to another structure. Rubs and minor losses, areas on the upper back where a wing(s) once was.
