Painted Terracotta Sculpture Portraying the Apostle Saint Paul, 18th Century


Molded and painted terracotta sculpture, most likely portraying Saint Paul, the Apostle, 18th century. The apostle is dressed in a tunic whilst holding the holy book. One attribute is missing, there is some loss of color and a few nags. St. Paul is often considered to be the most important person after Jesus in the history of Christianity. His epistles have had enormous influence on Christian theology, especially on the relationship between God the Father and Jesus, and on the mystical human relationship with the divine. Perfect reminder of Saint Paul's determination to preach the gospel.
