Antique Hand-Carved & Polychrome Painted Sculpture of The Madonna and Child



This well executed hand carved wooden sculpture of the Madonna and Child is unsigned, but presumed to have been done in Europe, likely Italy or England, in approximately 1900 in the period Edwardian style. The sculpture is composed of pine and is very detailed from all sides depicting The Madonna cradling a child with one arm and holding a basket containing two birds with the other hand. The entire sculpture has been polychrome painted in muted pastel tones and the veil is exceptionally detailed and textured.
