Carved Wood Statue Madonna and Child c 1881
Beautifully carved wood figure of a crowned Virgin Mary holding a flowering sceptre in one hand and in the other, balanced on her hip, the child Jesus. The child has an old man face typical of medieval figures. On the bottom are the sculptor's initials, PL or PV, with a date of 81. I am assuming this is 1881 because of the neo-gothic style of this carving, so popular in the late 19th century during the Gothic Revival. Height is 23" Size of base is 6" x 4" Condition is excellent, although the hand with the sceptre has been re-attached.
