Beautiful hand carved images representing a Virgin Mary with Baby Jesus in the clouds. She is considered to be the example of perfect motherhood. She is the Patron Saint of midwives and weavers; she also can be invoked for finding lost articles. She is dressed with an all white gown and robe with golden edges. Baby Jesus is held with both arms. Great hair and cloth carvings along with charming glass eyes and a dramatic facial expression on both characters make this image unique. The piece has the charming detail of a cloud made stand, that indicate the place in Heaven of the beloved images. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS Shipping.
