I spent almost 3 hours cleaning this tonight. It was so covered in soot! I couldn't believe it when i found this piece - almost black with soot for only $4 today. It is in near perfect condition and very beautiful - at least to me. This kind of old Catholic stuff is just rich with meaning for me - even though i consider myself to non-religious. I'm not anti-religious, but definitely non-religious. But i still appreciate this art work - and the more baroque, the better! can we have a 'religious art' category? or religious icon category?
how old do people think this piece is? there are two hand-cut screws on the back.
