Original old antique Santos, Philippines Spanish Colonial Religious Imagery - January 11, 2017 by admin
Original old antique Santos, Philippines Spanish Colonial Religious Imagery

During the 19th century while under Spanish rule religious images were very popular with the mostly Catholic population of the Philippines. Large , ornate and expensive pieces could be found in churches but every home rich or humble would have a family shrine with a Madonna , figure of Christ or Saint carved from wood and painted. Toward the end of the 19th century mass produced statues made from painted plaster of Paris imported from industrialized Europe put an end to this traditional art form. During the 1950s local collectors started to show an interest in the old wooden statues and preserved many beautiful pieces in private and public collections. Prices and interest appreciated and by 1980 most of the material had disappeared from the art market. The pieces are listed individually in separate offers. San Roque standing on an elaborate base which has two wings for placing candles. A very beautiful piece. From Pampanga province and in my personal collection since the 70s. Hardwood with remains of gesso and polychrome paint. After a lifetime of collecting Dallasartsnet is liquidating its extensive collection of art. Should there ever be a problem I will.
