This capipote which represents the Salvator Mundi is very atypical in its proportions.
However, they were not intended to be unveiled, the capipotes being dressed.
The Salvator Mundi is a representation of Christ the Redeemer.
With his right hand he gives his blessing by raising his index and middle fingers. He bestows the favors of God. It is also the hand of teaching, it teaches the divine word.
In his left hand is an orb.
Unfortunately our beautiful sculpture has lost its orb.
