Vintage religious wood carving Church statue hooded monk figure saint 19" tall
Vintage carving of a robed man with a hood and a beard, perhaps a monk or friar? I am not sure if this was intended as a religious icon, or just as a candle holder/ornament. The grooves at the front (the recessed area between his arms, and the folds of his robes) look as if they might have been designed to hold something - perhaps a rosary, a bracket for a candle, or similar item of church furniture?
The carving does stand up by itself, but it has a hole at the back, so it can be fixed to the wall.
I do not know how old this carving is, or where it comes from.
Height is 19 inches (46 cm) approx.
Vintage wooden carving, scuffed but no damage.
