Antique Mexican Spanish Colonial Cristo - Santo
18th - 19th Century

~ please scroll down for more photos ~ SIZE:

Height (including base) - - 3.75" x 6.75" DESCRIPTION:

Large and beautiful fragmentary Mexican - Spanish Colonial religious statue of Christ, or a Christian Saint,
dating to the late 18th or early 19th century.

Carved, gessoed, and painted wood, with remnants of hair eyelashes.

This piece is not primitive or naive, but carved, finished, and decorated in the Old World European style of Spanish religious sculpture with realistic features and proportions. The head and especially the face are very expressive and I believe this is a representation of Jesus the Christ, but may possibly be one of the Christian Saints.

The details are quite beautiful and there are even fragments or remains of real hair eyelashes under his eyes. All of the paint appears to be original with no apparent areas of re-paint or restoration.

This figure is mounted on a newer unfinished wood base which displays the piece very nicely. AGE: 18th - 19th Century. CONDITION:

Overall good ethnographic condition, as shown in the photos and with the following noted: Missing both arms and feet. Chips and crazing to the green painted surfaces of the body and legs. Small losses, chips, and crazing to the painted surfaces on the head and face, as shown. Newer wood base (figure nailed to it from the bottom). Overall darkened aged patina to the original painted surfaces. HISTORY:
