Virgin and Child, Italy 18th century.
Inspired by the classic model, Mary is represented standing on a pedestal, holding the Child on her left arm.
Wearing fine sandals, she is draped in a dress with soft pleats, and wears a hairstyle of very decorative braided braids covered with a light veil. The classicism and elegance of the design, but above all the characteristic face and the sulphide eyes bring her to life.
In the base is a reliquary
