Antique French Pieta depiction marked Our Lady of Talence in a medallion under a domed glass. In a beautiful carved wood frame with Holy water font.

"The church of Notre-Dame de Talence has a Pieta, dating from the 15th century, offered by the nuns of Fontevrault to the Fontevrist priory of Talence Notre-Dame de la Rame founded in the 12th century.
Hidden several times during historical events such as the Wars of Religion or the French Revolution, the Pieta was solemnly placed in the new church in 1846 and pilgrimages were organised. The many ex-votos still bear witness to the healings and graces received by the pilgrims.
Today, the Pieta is located in one of the side chapels and is a listed monument." (

The small sculpture is most probably made of painted plaster. Some dust is visible.
Dark red / burgundy velvet between the medallion and the wood frame. It is  worn in places and feels quite rough.
