At once capturing the devotion and beauty of the Mother of Christ, this eloquent 18th Century Hand-Carved Statue of The Madonna features her perched on a pedestal of a cloud, standing upon the sickle, which was a symbol of the Islamic faith with which Christianity has endured acrimonious relations over the centuries, as well as a serpent, which represents the Devil, or evil incarnate.  The subtle gray painted finish has achieved a lovely patina over the centuries, and shows commensurate levels of subtle distressing for authentication.
