Primitive Antique Wooden Saint, Santo Sculpture

This is a small hand-made wooden sculpture of a Saint (Santo) or monk looking figure, dating back to the turn of the Century, from colonial Spain. The figure is carved from a soft wood, which has been worn over time. The figure was once also painted, but the gesso based pigments that been worn. Nevertheless, this Saint figure is quite special looking, with sharp eyes looking straight at you, and a stoic stance that portrays strength. The figure was painstakingly hand-painted and you can still see remnants of his bead, the individually rendered toes. He once had a red and green cloak, and two extended arms. These arms are no longer there, much like the halo he once had. You can see that over time, the simple working and then protruding elements of the sculpture were lost. He stands on a base that is 2 1/2 by 2 1/4 inches and he is 8 1/2 inches inches tall. This small religious figure most likely once travelled far to spread religion in the colonies. This is a great Santo sculpture, perfect for a collection of historical or religious figures, and for someone who appreciates antique woodworking.
