Italy, possibly Modena

This small-scale version of Mary collapsing at the foot of the cross is a model for an over life size sculptural group in the church of San Francesco in Modena. Both were made of terracotta (literally �cooked earth�). The malleability of clay made it ideal for models, which were then fired to preserve them.

Given by Dr W.L. Hildburgh, FSA
