Pretty little Madonna and Child in boxwood, sculpted in the round.
The Virgin is standing and supports on her left arm the child Jesus, dressed in a tunic and carrying the terrestrial globe.
She is wearing a dress belted at the waist with a large bow and a coat with a very beautiful drape falling in pleats on the front.
The expression of the faces is also treated with finesse; Marie wears a veil from which long wavy hair escapes, while her child has a chubby face gracefully topped with youthful curls. We will note in particular the tenderness of the smiles of Mary and her Child.

Boxwood was very popular in the production of small-sized carved pieces because it has properties close to ivory: its hard grain allows great finesse in carving and has a beautiful shiny appearance after polishing.
