Information

A wonderful relief panel made from "cartapesta" and depicting Adam & Eve.

Germany. Early 17th century.

Cartapesta is a material that is composed mainly of moulded vegetable fibres and was made to imitate carved wooden panels but at a fraction of the cost.

Antique objects or panels made from this material are very difficult to find. Cartapesta can be a fragile material, which is sensitive to variations in humidity and temperature, so finding one from this period is extremely rare.

Adam & Eve are depicted near the tree of knowledge in the garden of Eden, bearing its fruits and around which the serpent is entwined. On a branch a bird is perched. In its original polychrome.

The panel is presented in a frame. The black inner frame/slip dates to the 17th century, and has been fixed within a later 19thC Biedermeier frame. 

Condition - as per images.  Surface wear and craqueleur to the surface commensurate with age.
