This extraordinary wood carving is a figure of Santo Nino enveloped in an oval cartouche with swirling flourishes above and below. Nino is robed in dramatic array as she holds a globe in one while giving the sign of Christ in the other. The drapery and decoration of it is exceptional as is the rich relief carving. We believe that this Spanish Colonial era panel is early 19th C. It has a loop on the back for hanging. Please see condition report for important details. Dimensions: 15.25" w, 3" d, 30.5" h While the physical integrity of the carving is high, and there is wear typical of 200 year old wood objects, please note that there are significant number of worm holes over the surface. They are not generally noticed, but are certainly present. There are minor fissures at the bottom. Even with these defects, this panel hung for decades in a fine Atlanta home.
