Small Head of Christ
Small Head of Christ Hand Carved from Linden Wood.
Intended for private devotion, the carving shows the preference for defining volume and form with subtly worked lines.
The appealing refinement and the difficulty involved in carving the left lock of hair affords rich contrasts and skillfully integrates the fragility of the hair flowing in the open space with the solidity of the carved wooden structure.
