Height - 12.25" /// Width (base) - 8.5" /// Depth (base) - 6.75 DESCRIPTION:

Fine antique Mexican 'Anima Sola' or 'Lonely Soul' carved and painted wood religious sculpture with inset glass eyes.

The Anima Sola is a departed soul awaiting judgement in the flames of purgatory and statues representing people this state became popular and objects of cult worship in Catholic Mexico during the 19th century and earlier. The Anima Sola is thought of when a family member or loved one dies in sin. It is also thought of to send an enemy to a state of temporary suffering in purgatory.

This sculpture is quite expressive and depicts a man surrounded by flames on a painted wood base. The face was carved separately from the rest of the head allowing fine, realistic glass eyes to be inset. The wood is a hard pine and can be seen on the underside of the base.

The sculpture is quite realistic and in the classic Spanish Colonial traditional manner. AGE:

Early to mid 19th century. CONDITION:

Good complete condition with the following noted: Repairs to the right hand, wrist, and fingers. A small dent to the surface on the left shoulder. Small chips, losses, and abrasions to the surfaces. Crazing to painted surfaces. Some traces of candle wax on the base and flames.
