Description
2 sculptures (damned souls) - polychrome wood - Late 19th century
Austria or Germany

Two wooden sculptures from 19th century, depicting two damned souls engulfed in flames in hell, probably two martyr saints. Manufactures of Central European area, they were part of a group of different figures all wrapped in flames. They are made of two parts (see photos) and are in a good state of preservation. They measure about 26x15x10 cm. The presence of woodworms at the bases of the sculptures that have been treated with anti-worm needs to be pointed out.
