Marble Figure Statue Virgin Mary with Child, 19th Century.

Description

A fine 19th century hand carved marble sculpture of the Virgin Mary with Infant Christ.

The Virgin Mary is depicted in traditional flowing robes and shawl covering her hair. Ashe is holding the infant Christ in her arms and gazing straight ahead towards the viewer.

The infant Jesus is seated upon her arm, leaning on her with his right elbow and holding the “orbis terrarium” - “world of the lands” in his left hand symbolizing Christ’s dominion over the world. 

The figure was delicately hand carved beautifully depicting the facial features and folds on the fabric of Mary’s robes.

Sculptures of this kind of the Virgin Mary and Child are extremely common in the Christian faith and Catholicism in particular, they provide a focal point for worship and contemplation to the believers whether in the household or place of worship. They can be found in a variety of styles and materials throughout the Christian world, and marble figures are considered the pinnacle of artistic depiction due to the difficulty of creating them and the relation to the classic masterpieces of the past.
