Corpus Christi Skull

THE HOUSE OF ANTIQUES
19th Century life size terracotta skull
We are proud to offer a rare example of a late 19th century hand sculpted terracotta corpus Christi skull. This close to life size religious artifact is rare due to its size and untouched condition. The remnants of its being attached to a larger terracotta form is present at its base, this leads us to believe its would have sat at the feet of a large corpus Christi form. This object shows wear and tear in all the right places with a lovely deep patination across all its surface area. The underneath of the form is skull shaped which illustrates great craftsmanship, and attention to detail to the entire object it would have been attached to.
Size in inches: H 6.5” x W 8” x D 5.5”
Origin: European
Period: Early 19th Century
Material: Terracotta
Condition: Completely solid in structure and form, Faded in areas due to natural aging. This item has several aged scuffs across its surface, but nothing to affect its look. The underneath has obviously broken away from a larger form and has left some jagged shapes to the underneath. The skull sits perfectly as shown in the photos. This is an old object so please expect the condition to reflect this as Its exceedingly difficult to photograph all the areas in this piece. We strongly suggest reviewing all the photos provided as part of this advert and propose questions where sections are unclear to avoid disappointment.

Period: 

1900
