19th C. Filipino Mary in Mourning Carved Wooden Santo

Southeast Asia, Philippines, Spanish Colonial influence, ca. 1890 CE. A pretty, hand-carved wooden sculpture depicting the Virgin Mary in Mourning. She stands in a pious pose, with her hands pressed together at her chest in prayer. Her robe is dark blue, with a yellow cloak, naturalistically carved; her hair is also detailed and demonstrates the skill of the artist. She stands on a multi-tiered pedestal. Santo figures from the Philippines are part of their Spanish Colonial heritage. Size: 5.45" W x 14.7" H (13.8 cm x 37.3 cm)

Condition: Paint is faded. Tiny hole on forehead which may have once had a halo attachment. Small chips and nicks from the wood surface, especially the pedestal. Overall in nice condition.
