Saint Anne Italian Wood Statue by Bernardi
St. Anne (patron of grandmothers, and the mother of Mary) is depicted here giving instruction to the Virgin. This intricate piece of statuary stands 40cm (15.7 inches in height) and is finished in full color oils. The saint's extended hand is carved and shipped seperately.
Carved from the finest kiln dried lindenwood from the forests of the Italian Alps.
In the valleys of northern Italy's Alps the Bernardi family of artisans have been creating exquisite nativities and statuary generation after generation for over 400 years. Each unique piece is then hand stained, painted and gilded with impeccable attention to detail - no two exactly alike.
Their work has been chosen to grace the churches, villas, cathedrals and homes of Europe for 400 years, and now, this beautiful statuary will be available in the United States from In His Name Catholic Store.
Boxed with certificate of Val Gardena design.
