**First Time At Auction**
New World, Mexico, Spanish colonial period, ca. 18th century CE. A carved wooden lamb, perhaps from a creche or altarpiece. The lamb is kneeling, its head down, on a platform with a corona-style flare behind it. Its wool, hooves, and face are nicely detailed. The lamb is often symbolic of Christ in Christian iconography, and also relates to the Christmas story, which features shepherds and lambs kneeling before the Christ Child. Size: 8" W x 5.25" H (20.3 cm x 13.3 cm)
