Antique Sainte Anne d'Auray with Mary, Mother of Jesus, as a child statue and Holy water font..

Sainte Anne, Jesus' grandmother appeared in Brittany to a farmer called Yvon Nicolazic and told him in Breton "I am the mother of Mary" on 25th July 1624. On the 7th March 1625, the same farmer discovered a statue of St Anne in his field. That miraculous statue was almost completely destroyed during the Revolution. One small part of the face was recovered and is now in the base of a reproduction in the Basilica in Auray.

This is a big pilgrimage destination in France so devotional items like this statue have a huge relevance locally!

The base shows the face of the original Miraculous statue.

This statue is placed on rocks and there is a shell-shaped holy water font underneath.
Incrusted dust (rocks), scratches, small marks commensurate with age. There is a small break at the back. This statue has been on display and the font has been used!

Base 11.4 x 9.1 cm / 4.48 x 3.5 inches
Overall height is 21 cm / 8.26 inches
