The patination and the lifelike features are truly extraordinary - carved in an almost 3D quality!
Original, signed: Kafka
Beautiful condition commensurate with age. There is a small area missing on one of Jesus's little fingers and a small wood split in 2 of St Anthony's fingers - see images
As the saying goes - when it is gone it is gone - there will never be another of such quality and with such magnificent provenance.
