Terracotta Santos Head
We are proud to offer an unusual and highly decorative example of an early 20th century hand-sculped terracotta Santos figure head. Likely to have been attached to a full bust or human form representation of a Santos figure at some point in its lifetime. This fragment is resented as a piece of religious decorative art. Accompanied by a wooden display stand. With a macabre look the terracotta colour is visible underneath the overlaid chalk finish.
Size in inches or ark: H 9” x W 6.5” x D 8” / With Stand H15” x W 6.5” x D 8”
Origin: Italian
Period: Early 20th Century
Material: Terracotta
Condition: This item is completely solid in structure and form. Wear is present through faded and natural patina across the surface as shown, an aged object so please expect age related wear in the form of scratches, fading and light chips across the object. Its exceedingly difficult to photograph all the areas in this piece therefore we strongly suggest reviewing all the photos provided as part of this advert and propose questions where sections are unclear to avoid disappointment.

1920
