Madonna of the Immaculate Conception


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Devotional statuettes carved in ivory celebrating the Virgin Mary were popular in Europe during the 1600s, and this taste spread to the colonies established by Catholic countries in Asia and the Americas. The three most important locations for production of these ivories were the Portuguese colonies in Goa, where this piece was made, the island of Sri Lanka, and the Spanish colony of the Philippines.
