Wonderful large flying Holy Spirit bird. 
This dove used to be part of a large Louis Quinze church pulpit, it must have been some spectacular pulpit seen the size of this huge sculpture that was hanging from the pulpit's roof. Clearly made to invigorate the priests sermon once. But now this also looks mythical hanging by it's own. Look at the amazing detail in the feathers, the gessoed polychrome hand-carved wood and it's gilt feet and beak.

It hangs from a hook in it's back, could be mounted on the wall, but it sure looks more impressive hanging from a ceiling.

The spread wings measure 180 cm (70.9 inch).
