According to the legends, there are two Saint Anthony’s, they can easily be distinguished by their hair. This one is known as Saint Anthony of Padua. He is recognizable by his hair, which is a clerical tonsure. It is practice of cutting or shaving some of all the hair on the scalp as a sign of religious devotion. Saint Anthony was born in 1232 in Lisbon, Portugal. He was a Portuguese Catholic priest and friar of the Franciscan Order. Known by his contemporaries for his powerful preaching, expert knowledge of scripture and undying love and devotion to the poor and the sick, he was one of the most quickly canonized saints in church history. Saint Anthony of Padua is also known as patron saint of lost things. The wooden sculpture stands on a wooden block, while the figure is holding the Child in his left hand. His right hand has disappeared. The Child has a lighter shade of brown with nice polychrome, and he is holding a small circular object. The Child has lost his left hand.

For VINTAGERIOUS Guy Kuypers, the history of his collecting began at the Porte de Clignancourt in Paris with a Napoleon III case filled with Exotic Birds. The colorful birds piqued my imagination and became the beginning of a passion for Natural History, Ethnography, European Works of Art, Antiquities and Curiosities that drive me on all continents, looking for fascinating and rare objects. Whether they are natural or man-made, all have an interesting story to tell.

So, it is finally in this spirit that the collection, which encompasses Natural History,Tribal Art,Paintings & Sculptures and Curiosities from many cultures and periods in history finds its rationale and its roots.
