Description

The work consists of a painted and gilded wooden case that contains a sculpture of the guardian angel in the act of protecting a child. The object constitutes a domestic altar whose presence in the Marche houses was very frequent.

The work of local production of the second half of the century. XVIII has the advantage of having been preserved in its formal entirety and of constituting an example of high artistic craftsmanship in which elements of plastic processing are associated with others of more marked cabinet-making interest. The level reached by the local workshops on the carving and modeling front is well documented by the elegance of the case which presents decorative elements in relief of different formal qualifications with a scrolling development in the coping and a ribbon in the uprights with the motif of the inverted pine cone and of the acorn-shaped tassel. The same refined elegance manifests the angel figurine.
