Antique John Baptist Carved Wood Folk Santo Statue

[ translate ]

29.5" x 8" x 6". Antique carved wooden John the Baptist sculpture from a single block of wood. Likely Latin American Spanish Colonial, though it was purchased in Europe by previous buyer. Likely 18th-19th century though possibly earlier. Finely carved, unpainted piece. Depicts John the Baptist standing in a robe with his head turned to the side. Both arms have been lost at the elbow and are no longer with the piece, and the tip of the nose and some toes appears to be missing or chipped as well. Other wear includes some flaking wood sealant and vertical cracks in the piece due to the age of the wood, though it is still structurally sound.
