The “Pietà” is the traditional representation of the Virgin Mary mourning over the dead body of Christ. The Mary of this work, dating from the 19th / 20th century, is very far from the idealized traditional figure: she is a real, old woman, full of pain and suffering. These feelings are very well conveyed by her wrinkles, the dark circles under her eyes, her mouth unable to find any word, and by her gaze, aimed at her Son for the very last time. She holds his head with her hand, and holds his left arm with the other hand, as if she was offering the body of her Son, translating the words of the liturgy: "Take and eat; this is my body, which is being given for you". From a stylistic point of view, this sculpture is linked to the representations of 15th century artists such as Masaccio, Mantegna and Bellini, who in their works painted the Virgin Mary as an old real woman, marked by suffering. This sculpture was originally placed in a shrine; later, it was added a wooden pedestal in order to use the “Pietà” as a private devotional altar. Size: 49 x 43 x 6.5 cm

Beeld is zwaar beschadigd aangekomenI'm sorry, it was perfectly packed, if I get the details, I can contact the courier.
There are reasonable doubts about this lot, as might be not a genuine medieval piece. Seller not giving much help about this and no information about the origine of this piece.I offered the buyer to pay for laboratory expenses to confirm the sculpture's dating. But he did not accept, I'm 100% sure about the Medieval Originality of Sculpture, as confirmed by Catawiki's expert who had evaluated the opera € 900/1100. I confirm that I offer you the costs of a laboratory test.
fast schipping. great transaction
De icoon wordt momenteel bekeken door een specialist twijfel indien het wel 19 e eeuws is. Ik hou u op de hoogteStia tranquillo, come hanno confermato gli esperti di Catawiki, l'Icona é originale, probabilmente suona strano il prezzo, alquanto basso, di aggiudicazione, ma si sa alle Aste si possono fare de veri e propri affari. La saluto cordialmente.
