ND de la Salette Wall Frame

Regular price €440

A wonderful French antique religious framed sculpture in relief. It features Our Lady of La Salette, crying Madonna with two children. "Our Lady of La Salette is a Marian apparition reported by two children, Maximin Giraud and Mélanie Calvat to have occurred at La Salette-Fallavaux, France, in 1846."
"According to the children's account, the Virgin invited people to respect the repose of the seventh day, and to respect the name of God. She sorrowfully threatened punishment, in particular a scarcity of potatoes, which would rot."
"Pope John Paul II stated: "As I wrote on the occasion of the 150th anniversary, 'La Salette is a message of hope, for our hope is nourished by the intercession of her who is the Mother of mankind."

The carving is beautifully cfated and I guess that it is made of true meerschaum and not plaster as usual for this kind of sculpture. Take a close look at pictures and see how detailed it is.

This religious wall frame dates from the end of the 19th century and is in good antique condition with some normal signs of ages on the frame.

It measures 10" (25.5cm) high and (20cm) 7 7/8" wide.
