A Hand Carved Wooden Lamp, Santo Figures, Provenance Sloane’s New York
This charming lamp is hand carved from a wormy wood representing four Santo figures. Each figure is cloaked in long robes with a stylized hood. The figures each hold a staff and have their hands, palm out, in a sign of peace. The lamp is colored with a patina of ocher, black, white and red. The delivery wormed wood creates this old world charm. The wood has also had some shrinkage creating vertical cracks. This being said the lamp is stable.
