Corpus Christi (1) - Papier-mache, Wood - 17th century

Description
Corpus Christi (1) - Papier-mache, Wood - 17th century
France

Mysterious, heavy damaged Corpus Christi. The image has suffered over the centuries, has been broken, restored to be worshipped again, has had wood worm, has been in fire, in short, a miracle that it is still there. The condition is therefore very lived, but that makes the image speak to the imagination. Is carved from wood, but restored over the centuries with lime, paper-mache.... To keep it presentable. Beautiful piece on a modern wooden base, so it fits in a classic as well as modern interior.
