Truly a very special one of a kind religious piece, this large plaster statue features the lovely iconic image of the seated Jesus and includes an acrylic base. Recently discovered in Bruges, Belgium and is the considered the original "master" for molds where pieces were made for church alters and estates across Europe in the 1800s. The factory was forced to close during the Nazi occupation during WWII and this is part of a collection of these plaster masters that were later discovered in the attic of the building. (This is where the term "masterpiece" originated). Please note the piece is not in pristine condition due to it's age and a portion of the hand is missing, but we feel it adds to the character and integrity of the piece. Crafted of plaster, wood and burlap and some pieces include the metal rod for the mold. Crating and very special attention to shipping is given with freight shipment of the piece.
Measures 45"H x 15"W x 15"D. Acrylic pad is 2" thick and is permanently attached to the plaster piece. Due to the materials and size, expert packing, crating and shipping will be required. Please contact us for a shipping quote before purchase.
