16th Century Spanish Baroque Painted Wooden Sculpture. Polychrome Infant Jesus For Sale

16th Century Spanish Baroque Painted Wooden Sculpture. Polychrome Infant Jesus

Striking Spanish Baroque Painted Wooden Sculpture from the 16th Century. Polychrome Infant Jesus with the Globe in his Hand

Antique and valuable Spanish painted wooden sculpture depicting Infant Jesus with the Globe in his hand. This is an original polychrome carving from the 16th century that still keeps a great part of the painting that covered it completely hundreds of years ago. It is a very antique and highly appealing piece, an iconographic representation known as “Niño de la Bola” or “Santo Niño de la Bola” (Holy Child with the Ball). These sculptures are representations of Jesus Christ as Infant Jesus carrying a ball in his hand that symbolizes the World. In this particular piece the ball is missing, but the figure still preserves all its charming and beautiful presence though hundreds of years have passed by since it was made.

The Child is standing on an anvil-shaped wooden pedestal. The figure depicts a completely naked child who is lifting his right hand in a blessing pose. The fingers of this hand are missing and so is the left hand that in origin would carry the Globe. The rest of the sculpture is almost complete, and some points have been attacked by antique woodworm. Nevertheless the figure has been treated and the woodworm is completely eradicated.

This sculpture keeps a great part of its original painted covering, and this feature provides it with high value and enhances its deep beauty. More than the fifty per cent of its surface is covered by stucco and temple painting used to embellish this kind of pieces. The skin’s delicate color shows light shades of pink in some places such as the lips and cheeks, turning this sculpture into a charming piece. The figure’s back also keeps most of its paint; the covering is missing mostly at the front left side of the piece.

This amazing sculpture is a real collector’s piece because of its ancient age and great beauty. It deserves a place of honor in an elegant room or a stylish house.

WE GUARANTEE YOUR ACQUISITION

Investing in antiques is always a nice way to profitable your money. Many collectors have became millionairs. If you are starting a collection, follow these important tips:

- If you want to invest in antiques, always choose original pieces and avoid reproductions. A reproduction loses half of its value in the same minute that you are purchasing it, while an original antique gains value each passing day. This is an original antique and its value will continue growing tomorrow.

- Read and learn about for area of interest: swords, clocks, phonographs, antique photos, old silver, technical antiques, typewriters... Invest in books as much as in your collection and learn as much as you can. If you keep your collecction catalogued, you will increase its value.

- Keep yourself informed about the market prices in your area of interest. There are many sources but mainly, visit as many fairs as you can, research in the Internet and read the final sales prices in the traditional sale houses.

- Finally... Collect antiques, not junk. It is always better a small collection with excellent pieces than a huge collection of junk, rusty irons and broken machines. Select your pieces. There is not a goal to reach, so take the pleasure in in the process of your treasure hunting. A collection should be something to enjoy, and there is many interesting pieces out there and very few time to enjoy them, so be selective with your choices.

If you follow these simple steps you will be in the correct direction to develop an excellent collection, whatever is your area of interest and, for me the most important of all, enjoying the process

Meanwhile, we are in touch.
