A Goodwill find of a wall hanging sculpture of the 12 apostles. Originally it had many wires protruding from the back. Were the wires used to carved the piece or was it a method to strengthen the plaster? The detail work on each face is amazing. Its originality is better than any reproduction that exist. When touched, people ask if it is made out of steel but it’s just hardened plaster perhaps it is very old. There is no history of an original wall hanging splattered sculpture. Who made this? And when? This piece apparently has been curated multiple times to protect and preserve its originality. The interesting point is it’s rarity. Are these the real faces of the true 12 apostles? Could there be lost History out there that can define such a piece? This is obviously more original than what is being sold today. Hope someone can add knowledge to this piece.
