Italian work of the seventeenth century. These two carved and gilded oak statues meet in graceful contrapposto. Despite their similarities, these are two original sculptures: The gown is knotted on the belly for one and is thrown over the shoulder for the other, the right leg is forward for one and back for the other, one of the two angels has a Greek nose and the second has snub nos ... Each one a hand raised to the sky and the other holding a candlestick.
Both are based on molded and polychrome circular wood.
The backs are sketched. The gilding is laid directly on the wood. Wear and tear.
