French Nativity In Carved Wood 17th Century

Nativity polychrome wood, carved in high relief, period XVII. The Holy Family is represented in a stable, under a wooden frame surmounted by animated clouds of winged cherub heads.
The Virgin and Joseph are represented standing, framing the child Jesus lying on a bed of straw and protected by the donkey.
The Virgin, hands clasped, leans tenderly towards her son. She is wearing a long pleated dress and her hair is covered with a veil. His face with fine features expresses a great sweetness. Joseph is present with them in a collected attitude.
He is wearing a dress covered with a loose coat. His bearded face is borrowing serenity.
