Italian Reliquary 17e Century

A reliquary is an object that is intended to accommodate relics. It allows the faithful to honor the relics without risking damaging them.

Our reliquary cannot be identified. His shoulders are covered with a toga decorated with a cherub above the opening which was used to admire the relic (s). This cherub protects the relic just like the four cherubim which surround the throne of God according to the Apocalypse of Saint John.
