Carved wood panel of Saint Columba, c1900, Ecclesiastical art
A beautiful carved wood panel of Saint Columba from around 1900, possibly earlier.
To avoid confusion, this Saint Columba was the 6th century Irish missionary saint who worked across Europe. He is recognisable here by the tame bear in the corner of the panel.
The panel is worked in a mixture of carving and poker work with gold around the halo.
A fine piece of ecclesiastic art, gracefully carved and with an air Art Nouveau about it.
Measures 25 ½ inches x 8 ½ inches / 64.5cm x 21.5cm
It has two wooden blocks on the back and a leather strap for hanging.
In very good condition.
