Defaced During the Rule of Oliver Cromwell - A 16th Century Antique Carved Oak Panel Depicting Adam and Eve

  • Reference : 4533
  • Availability : Sold
  • Dimensions : Height 16 3/4" x Width 14"
  • Price : ¬£Sold

Information

Despite its appearance, this is a charming and large 16th Century antique oak carving depicting Adam and Eve within the garden of Eden presented with an arcaded frieze and flanked by Renaissance figures.  It also shows British social history too of the 17th Century.

Defaced during the reign of Oliver Cromwell in the 17th Century during the time of the English Civil War following Parliament's order of 1641 for the removal and abolition of idolatrous images, the head and arms of both Adam and Eve have been removed along with the head of the snake that it is entwined within the Tree of Knowledge to the left of Adam!

The panel does display well and should be viewed with its past history in mind.

Condition - as per images.
