Virgin at the Cross


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description This carved wooden statue came from a church interior. Most statues of this type were originally covered by gesso (a mixture of glue and plaster of Paris) and then painted in vibrant colors, with some details gilded; only traces of these decorations still remain. This statue of Christ's mother originally would have been part of a Crucifixion group, along with Saint John the Evangelist.
