FRENCH school from the end of the 17th century.
Group of Pietà
Sculpture in hardwood, slight traces of coating and polychromy, hollow back.
The Virgin, with her face raised towards the sky, her left hand open palm upwards, holds the body of her dexter son under Christ's right shoulder in a seated position and whose head leans over his mother's chest.
The left hand repeats the gesture spread by Michelangelo's Pietà, while the face raised towards the sky marks the evolution of the Baroque Pietàs from the mid-17th century onwards.
Some restorations and accidents.
