Sculpture, Saint Louis en acte de prière - Bois, Terre cuite - Début du XIXe siècle
Italie

Picturesque sculpture dating back to the beginning of the 19th century depicting St. Louis in the act of praying.
The composition includes the Saint with terracotta head, glass eyes and wood limbs. The body is made of iron covered with stubble, as per the ancient Neapolitan tradition. The composition lays over a round wooden base, there is a kneeling-stool in lacquered wood, a terracotta skull over a book, a cross with Christ made in ebanized wood.
The Saint grasps a metal rose and a very little rosary with a pearl cross; on his head there is an aureole. The Saint is about 40 cm high; everything is in good condition with slight signs of wear due to ageing.
Fast and safe shipping.
