Large painted wood Virgin and Child, Spain 18th century

Virgin and Child in carved and painted wood, in the round, of large dimensions, on its console. 
Rich decoration of flowers with gold highlights. 
The Child holds in his hand a bird, a goldfinch, which generally announces in a symbolic way the sacrifice to come of the Son of God during the Passion. According to another legend, as Christ carried his cross up to Calvary, a small bird fluttered around his head and removed a thorn from his forehead. 
Southern France, but more likely northern Spain, circa 1740-1750.
Height with console with three cherubs: 1,30m
