Information

A charming decorative object depicting the Lamb of God lying upon the Book of Seven Seals (also known as the Book of Revelation).

18th Century.

Italian origin.

Gilt gesso over carved wood.

The Significance of The Lamb lying upon the book:

In the Book of Revelation, the Seven Seals are the seven symbolic seals that secure the book or scroll that John of Patmos saw in an apocalyptic vision. The opening of the seals of the document occurs in Revelation Chapters 5–8 and marks the Second Coming. In John's vision, the only one worthy to open the book' is referred to as both the "Lion of Judah" and the "Lamb having seven horns and seven eyes".

The seven seals contained secret information known only to God until the Lamb/Lion was found worthy to open the book and to look on the contents.

Condition - age related losses to some of the gesso. The Seven Seals that were original affixed to the book are now missing.  This still displays very well.
