Conquer by forgiveness

Early 19th Century Folk-art Corpus Christi
We are proud to offer a unique example of a hand carved folk-art Corpus Christi figure. Carved from pine and detailed in a gesso form with a lovely painted surface. Uncovered in Italy earlier this month this example fits perfectly into the self-taught folk-art movement of its time. With a deep patination across all its surface this example would take pride of place in a centrepiece display as a true work of religious art.
Size in inches of ark: H 20” x W 10” x D 3.5”
Origin: Italy
Period: 1830 - 1850
Material: Pine
Condition: This item is completely solid in structure and form. Wear is present through faded and natural patina across both the Christ form and crucifix. Aged repair is present with some loss in areas. Its exceedingly difficult to photograph all the areas in this piece therefore we strongly suggest reviewing all the photos provided as part of this advert and propose questions where sections are unclear to avoid disappointment.

Our house style is probably best described as artistic, theatrical and, even macabre.
