This is a lovely religious motif from a Church banner dating to the 19th century. I am unsure as to what religious figure he is depicting, he could be an Apostle or a Saint. The figure has a lithographed face, hands and feet. There is some damage to his face that has been caused by it becoming creased. The body of the figure is padded and he is dressed in gold fabric and red velvet robes that are trimmed with gold metallic trim. He does have age related marks and wear but is in good overall condition considering his age. He was originally destined for or came off of a religious banner. He looks wonderful hanging up for Christmas or a lovely piece for the collector. He measures 14 inches in height and 9.5 inches across the bottom.
