Bishop

Well carved figure of a Bishop which still retains the original polychrome decoration.
As these figures usually originated in churches they were generally repainted at regular intervals.
It is therefore extremely nice to find an untouched example.

Height 106 cm. Width 44cm. Depth 27cm.

Spanish. Circa 1700.
