Sicily, Italy

Rare Sicilian group, symbol of the 18th and 19th century craftsmanship made by the great masters between the area of Trapani and Palermo, where this kind of manufacturing has made its craftsmen famous throughout the world. This very homogeneous representation portrays Adam and Eve under a tree, while extending their hands toward the apple which is represented by a small face (Lucifer). Both were carved while sitting, in a very pretty pose while holding their hands. The alabaster has a very bright patina of a beautiful colour, it has no damage nor breakage nor reconstructed parts, but its completely original and well-preserved. Only one millimetric chips on Adam's nose and maybe on his thumb, but this may be due to normal signs of ageing in consideration of its high age. Please note that the head of Lucifer seems to have been repaired at the base, though I'm not sure because of its colour and the petrification of alabaster due to its high age, so this can only be my own impressions that I point out here for maximum transparency. This rather heavy group is fixed on a wooden base of a later age. The subjects have no veil and have abundant forms, consistent with the representation that we all know. Eva has a really beautiful face and long hair that go down to the bottom of her back.
Overall height 40 cm x width 20 cm.
Pictures are an integral part of the description.
It will be professionally packaged and shipped.

    Het pakket lag niet op het ups ophaalpunt.
    En nu moet de verkoper er achterheen en die echt alle moeite doet. Kan alleen hopen dat UPS het pakket naar hem retourneert en misschien lukt het dan wel.
