Carved 18th Century Oval Wooden Religious Plaque from France
This beautiful hand-carved French wooden plaque dates to the 1700s. It depicts a very finely executed scene of a religious nature with varying degrees of symbolism. Originally this may have been in a Church or a private chapel of a chateau. This plaque depicts a religious person in front of a thatched covered area. A pair of shoes is behind him at the base of his robe and behind this is a piece of cloth draped over a tree stump. He is in front of an alcove with a cross having the image of Christ and two candlesticks with lit candles flanking the cross. To the left forefront and behind the man’s hand is a skull, representing the death of Christ. To the right is a church in a wooded setting. The carving is well done with deep relief. On the back, you can see that this plaque has been joined from different pieces of wood.
