A Wonderful 17th Century Carved Wooden Figure of Christ

A wonderfully carved continental figure of Christ retaining traces of original polychromy, probably French or Spanish, mid to late 17th century.

The calmness of expression in the face is in marked juxtaposition to the solemn story told by the body. An accomplished piece of ecclesiastical carving which imparts a strong presence.
