Circa 17th Century French Wooden Saint figure
Circa 17th Century French Wooden Saint John the Baptist. Exceptionally hand carved, this Saint holds a lamb and a bible in his hand. The lamb is a common attribute to John the Baptist, it symbolizes his recognition of Jesus as the son of the Lord. This figurine has also been hand painted however over time the paint has worn off. It is a religious symbol of peace and faith and would be a superb piece to have in the home. Missing carved feet. Paint and wood is worn but still in good condition for its age overall.
