71 EARLY 19TH CENTURY SANTOS, CRISTO CRUCIFICADO (CHRIST CRUCIFIED): Sublime, museum type figure of a wooden Christ, nailed to the cross. At the craftsman shop, this figure did not undergo all the steps to create a "completed" wooden sculpture, but by the nature of its superior wood modeling, (contours of shape), and the tragic beauty, inherint in the body of a suffering Christ, it is an outstanding piece. Few complete Santos acheive the depth & movement in space of this particular figure. This wooden sculpture is a magnificent testiment to sculpture that "feels", in this case, the pathos of the Crucifixician. The viewer is invited to partake in the vivid expericence of this piece.

71A LA VIRGEN DEL ROSARIO ("OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY"): 19th Century portable wooden virgen on small pedestal, surrounded by a mandorla of hundreds of ex-votos. Stand with small vases attached in stylized crosses around its borders are ecclesiastical in style, & this strongly suggest that this particular virgen clothed in authenic garb, decorated with human hair, & embellished by glass eyes, came from a church. Spiritually speaking, the history of this particular piece seems extraordinary, in the believers imagination, and evident to them by the multitude of ex-votos surrounding her. In terms of answering the pleas of the faithful, this virgen was apparently considered miraculous by the believers, because she answered supplications & prayers with much frequency attested by the multitude of tin ex-votos that hang from her mandorla, (or miraculous aura that surrounds a saint). For every miracle granted, an ex-votos is pinned. This piece is country rustic & sublime in the expression captured in the spirtuality of her face & eyes. Noticeably, she is a blond, in a captured land, most populated by forcibly converted Indians. At this level, the wood sculpture attests to the Spanish Roman-Catholic success of impossed mestizage (fusion of culture, race & religion) in the Americas. 17 1/2" in height. Est. $1,400.00 - $1,600.00.**.No Sale
