Altar piece - 70 cm - in neat, used condition

Wonderful large sculpture of Christ the King, sitting on his throne With two angels by his side that crown him Made of plaster and partially gilded For many years the sculpture was high on a side altar in the chapel of a monastery in the Antwerp region Unfortunately this monastery is closed nowadays
This special sculpture is in neat condition, but is somewhat used and has various imperfections and old repairs, see photos It has a wonderful, somewhat melancholic appearance

The feast of Christ the King of the Universe Dominus Noster Iesus Christus Universorum Rex, is a solemnity in the Roman Catholic Church that is celebrated at the end of November, on the 34th and last Sunday of the liturgical year

Christ the King is a feast for Catholic action groups and youth movements Particularly for the Chiro After the introduction of the feast, Sacred Heart sculptures were also depicted as King, many with royal attributes A small number of these shows Christ sitting on a throne, like the sculptures in Posterholt, Schijndel and sibbe

Measurements approx:
height 70 cm, width 44 cm

Due to its vulnerability and its weight pick up is preferred in the Baarle Hertog/Nassau region (the Netherlands)

    They tried to deliver your parcel several times at 31-Januari, but no one was there. Normally you get a card then with pick-up instructions.
