Hand Carved Wooden Sculpture of Saint Anthony of Padua

About

This is a striking Primitive hand carved statue of Saint Joseph of Padua. The Saint stands with head slightly bowed and with a reverent expression. He is clothed in a long blue tunic bearing pressed, gold-painted floral buds, beneath a green toga, slung over one shoulder and tied round his waist. He stands on a grassy or mossy rock. In his right hand Saint Anthony holds three flowering lily stalks, lilies being symbolic of purity. The bouquet is delicately carved as a separate removable piece, perhaps in reference to an event in Austria in 1680, when it is said that a devotee of the Saint placed a lily in the hand of his statue. It is remarkable that these flowers have survived. In his left arm Saint Anthony holds the baby Jesus, crowned and holding an orb in his left hand, his right making the iconic sign for blessing or teaching. The Christ Child, too, is separately carved and is attached in the cradle of Saint Anthony’s arm. No chips or repairs.
