Out of stock


A 16th Century carved lime wood bust of a male Saint.

Italian origin. Life-size.

The timber is covered in a thin layer of gesso with brown over-paint.

Condition – as per the images. There is age-related surface wear and losses to the paint and gesso layer. There are traces of old worm but this is long since gone and has been treated too as a precautionary measure. The carving displays very well. A further detailed condition report is available upon request.
