Rare 18th Century Life Size Carved Wood Statue of St. Joseph

$19,275

About

Magnificent wood statue of St. Joseph, hand-carved of solid oak with intricate draped cloths and a beautiful, lifelike facial expression. A rare and exquisite work of 18th century religious art, this life-size statue comes from a small village chapel in Provence. St. Joseph is described in the Gospel as a discreet but determined man and his stance portrays deep contemplation and silent strength. The detail in the raiment is stunning, extending all around. Religious statues of this size and age are highly sought after and this one would be an attribute to any space. Very good overall condition. Minor losses. The staff is missing. Dimensions: Height 78 inches Width 44 inches Depth 23 inches.
