19th C. Mexican Painted Wood Santo - Virgin Mary

Lot 0119 Details

Description
**First Time At Auction**

New World, Mexico, Spanish Colonial style, ca. 19th century CE. A tall wooden santo figure of the Virgin Mary, dressed in dark blue, draped with a red cloak that covers her hair. She stands on a green wooden base, carved from the same piece of wood as her figure. Santos played an important role in bringing the Catholic Church to the New World with the Spanish colonists. These hand-sculpted religious figures were used like icons to explain the major figures - Mary, Christ, and the saints - in the religion to new, indigenous converts and served as a connection to the Old World for colonists far from home. After the period of colonization, the practice remained, especially in Mexico and Latin America. After Size: 2.25" L x 3.75" W x 11.6" H (5.7 cm x 9.5 cm x 29.5 cm)

Provenance: ex Kurquhill's Gallery, El Paso, Texas, USA; ex private El Paso, Texas, USA collection, acquired early to mid 1970s
