Italian Carved Wood Figural Group of Madonna and Child
A nicely hand carved wood figural group of the Madonna with baby Jesus. Hand painted with light colors - further faded over time. Were it not for the "Italy" label inside the base, one might easily mistake this for German, Southern Bavarian work. And as Italian, South Tyrol, it does issue from the same Tyrolean (a Kingdom, known for its wood sculpting, including modern day Austria, Southern Bavaria and South Tyrol - today Tyrol is an Austrian province still with Innsbruck as its capital) tradition of woodcarving. Good condition. Height 4 1/4 inches (10.795 cm)
