Italian High-Relief Carved Lamb of God Sculpture from the Mid-19th Century

An Italian lamb of god with gilt sunburst rays high-relief sculpture from the mid-19th century. This Italian decorative object features an exquisite depiction of the lamb of god, laying on a wooden altar with painted volutes and faux gems. Religious by nature, this theme shows here a skillful treatment, particularly obvious in the lamb's fleece. Accentuating the divine presence, the giltwood sunrays placed in the background complete the scene. The flat, unfinished back will make it a great wall ornament, however the Italian 1850s piece is freestanding and will make a wonderful decorative object that will adorn any table top or chest-of-drawers beautifully.
