Carved stone with original polychrome decoration
Second half of the 17th Century
Size: 20cm high – 8 ins high (approx)
The nature of the original polychrome indicates this well sculpted head to be Spanish, and the function of the realistic colouring was to make the figure sculpture stand out from the ornate baroque altarpieces with their salomonic columns, broken pilasters, geometric panels, scrolls and profusion of cherubs heads.
