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
