Folk Art Madonna Blessed Mother Flat Back Carved Sculpture 12"

This is perfect for home or office altars of peace and compassion. Brings a meditative mood and reminds us of our inner work to be done.
In the tradition of the larger three dimensional Santos, often seen in churches and missions, the smaller style of Santos has existed as a religious art form since the Spanish New World 16th century.
Hand carved by native artists of medium hardwoods; acacia, manga, the flatback represents the folk art version or halfcarving, hence the name flatback.
