Beautifully detailed Mexican Santo of John the Baptist. This wonderful figure dates to the mid-18th c. and retains most of its original surface, and carved elements. John is holding a finely carved and emotive lamb which is looking up at him in complete trust. The figure measures slightly more than 22 inches, has original hand and fingers, much of the original "estofado" polychrome detailing and a wondering expression of sadness as if he were anticipating his future. The figure is positioned on a finely carved plinth which was used to carry the Santo in processions--this is a very unusual feature. Note: John is missing the shepherd staff and some of the brackets into which poles were inserted for the processions. Thanks for looking.
