Exceptional 17th century Christ, made of Saint Lucia wood (cherry tree), probably originating from the workshop of César Bagard (1620-1709).
Very good condition, one broken toe (barely visible).
The sculptures of Christ in the 17th century were an opportunity for the artists to prove their virtuosity, their technique, the Christs are often very finely carved, detailed, we can even see the veins and muscles under the skin.
These are the so-called anatomical Christs dear to the 17th century.
Look at the fine workmanship in the bifid beard and mouth, the toes with skin that rises due to the pressure on the nails and the beautiful deep shiny patina, typical of the wooden objects of that time .
The cross is from the late 19th century, made of mahogany, it measures 62 by 30 cm and Christ itself is 38 cm.
