This 70cm (27.6 inch) statue of the Madonna and Child statue is hand carved and hand painted in full color oils with gold gilding by the artists of Bernardi Wood-Art.
The Blessed Mother is depicted as the Queen of Heaven holding her Son out to the world. The Christ Child is bearing the fruit of salvation to give to all mankind.
Carved from the finest kiln dried lindenwood from the forests of the Italian Alps.
In the valleys of northern Italy's Alps the Bernardi family of artisans have been creating exquisite nativities and statuary generation after generation for over 400 years. Each unique piece is then hand stained, painted and gilded with impeccable attention to detail - no two exactly alike.
Their work has been chosen to grace the churches, villas, cathedrals and homes of Europe for 400 years, and now, this beautiful statuary will be available in the United States from In His Name Catholic Store.
