C16th CARVED FIGURE of JOSEPH FATHER OF CHRIST and THE CHRIST CHILD
This striking carving approximately 73cm. tall including the base,shows St. Joseph holding the Christ Child . It dates from the C16th and we think it is Northern European, possibly German, and probably carved in lime wood.Much of the original polychrome paint still adheres to the carving.Over the years it has suffered damage, and much of the gesso filling is missing from the left side of the piece in particular, and later nails hold on some of the original attached pieces loosely . There is also a large hole in the head of the large figure, and a staff would have originally been in his right hand. This piece is very heavy and fragile, and I would be reluctant to ship it. Delivery might be possible however, and I could arrange to bring it to London or provincial Book Fairs. Please look at the several images of this piece, which although worn, has a profound serenity and presence which befits its subject
condition: Very Good
