Beautifully aged sculpture of Jesus blessing the children, as depicted in the Gospels. The sculpture is made of meerschaum which has aged to a yellow/brown- it is carved in relief and is incredibly detailed, as the pictures show.
The sculpture has a brass-colored metal circular surround with a loop to the top for wall hanging. The metal has a few dents. The sculpture itself is colored with age and also has many small imperfections and small chips as you would expect in an object this old. It was originally covered by a glass dome which has been lost.
A very unusual and collectible handmade item which would also be a beautiful addition to any home!
