19th century Carved Fruitwood sitting Martyr figure, Christ on a Rock
Date: 19th century
PRICE: $ 1150
Dimensions: H 38 cm W 20 cm D 23 cm
Polychromed sitting hand carved wooden religious altar statue.
He misses a hand, this is very common with wooden church statues like this. Where his hand should have been, different holders for metal objects could be placed, like shields, sticks with ensigns or a candle holder.
I think this contemplating Jezus, or Christ on a rock, was part of something bigger, the 'rock' he sits on is probably less old. The way he sits makes this figure very interesting.
