Exceptional sculpture representing a Pieta * Bone (Beef) with Jesus Christ after his descent from the cross into the arms of the Virgin Mary, the crown of thorns and the nails on the ground in front of Mary Magdalene, weeping, on a wooden base gilded carved a multitude of saints and prophets, then late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.

The Pieta is in good condition, it is a remarkable finesse and quality of sculpture. The pieta is removed from the wooden base easily (cross too). The wooden cross has no decoration.

A note: some small accidents gilding on wood base, breakage and repair old plate at the feet of Christ, some gaps in the crown, wear on one corner of the box as Mary Magdalene, cracks and wear time see pictures.
