Bust of an Angel praying, terracotta, Italy, 16th c.

Element of an architectural structure or console ? in terracotta representing an angel praying with his hands joined, his wings spread, his mouth half-open, emphasizing the great realism of the sculpture.
The angel is made in high-relief, engaged between an entablement (or a cornice?) above, the truncated body resting on a console below.
A few missing parts, especially on the hands, but not affecting the readability and the beautiful presence of the work.
Italy, probably from the Bolognese workshops, 16th c.
height without the base: 55,5 ( 61,5 with )
