Beautiful Christ with ties, in carved wood, 17th century, height 40 cm.
Very beautiful quality of sculpture and expression of the face, the imploring gaze turned to the Father waiting for an answer, expressing suffering, it is the pathos dear to the 17th .
Gone is the peaceful Christ of the Middle Ages, it is the torment and suffering that are now put forward, gone the straight and stiff body, it is the time of movement and contortion of the body . The beard is finely carved as well as the hair, the cheeks are hollow.
. Was obviously restored at the late 19th (the rock and a few toes redone) a few fingertips are broken (photo), the pieces will be joined.
