Polychrome carved sculpture of the Virgin Mary trampling the snake under her feet.
This sculpture was made in southern Europe around the beginning of the 18th century.
She looks on affably with arms crossed and hands on her chest. She is wearing a blue dress with a gold-plated collar. Underneath, a red robe visible by her arms and lower legs.
Beautifully cut pleats and particularly serene and affable look in her face.
Under her feet, she tramples the snake that has an apple and leaf in its mouth.
Special with this sculpture is the detailed and refined cut hair dress at the back.
Normal signs of wear. Traces of inactive woodworm. Two drought cracks at the front of the doily, not disturbing.
