Two 19th Century, Carved and Painted Religious Figures, "The Two Thieves"

About

Two carved wooden figures on wooden crosses, from the Crucifixion of Christ story. They represent "the good and the bad thieves" who were to the right and left of Christ in the New Testament description of Jesus Christ's crucifixion. I collected these very unusual, and fairly rare pieces 35 years ago, and they have been a special part of my Spanish Colonial collection of religious folk art. They are mounted on black steel stands.
