The simple carving technique, which brings out a lot of character, indicates that it was a sacred space or altar decoration in a country church. 17th century. After about 350 Years this piece of art shows signs of wear. At an earlier time the carving was given a coat of white paint, which is still visible. Some fingers are missing.
