Beautiful Virgin and Child Carved Alabaster Trapani, late 16th century.
The Virgin is represented in a standing position. She carries the baby Jesus on her left arm. The child turns his face towards his mother and clings to her in a tender movement.
Marie wears a long pleated dress and a veil that reveals her long wavy hair.
His face sketches a slight smile. The child Jesus wears a tunic whose drapery mingles with that of his mother.
This group full of charm is a beautiful testimony of the expertise of Sicilian sculptors of the late 16th century.
