Lambs of a Neapolitan nativity scene

This group includes a sheep and two lambs. Carved in the wood, these three sheep come from a Neapolitan nativity scene. The Neapolitan nativity scene is a tradition that has been perpetuated for centuries, and its golden age in the 18th century, when these three sheep were carved. The eye is lost in the treatment of the coat. Moreover, one can admire the search for precision in the poses, in particular in that of the lamb lying down. The dimensions indicated correspond to those of the ewe.

Period : 18th century
