18th Century Italian Mecca Arrow with a Baroque Pearl on a Polished Calcite Base

$950

About

18th-century Italian mecca arrow with a baroque pearl on a polished calcite base. The arrow was once used as part of a decorative motif in artistic depictions (most likely of Saint Sebastian) in historic Italian churches. It is hand-carved and hand-painted with mecca gold paint. It is mounted on the polished calcite base and adorned with a natural-forming baroque pearl. The sculptural work is put together by Jean O'Reilly Barlow, the artist and creative director of Interi. The date of manufacture reflects when she created the piece and the period shows that the arrow is originally 18th century. The piece has been combined with the polished calcite and baroque pearl to create a historically significant yet contemporary work of old and new.
