The patina created by loving devotion to this statue is fabulous!
Once no doubt fully gilded, the touch of hands has worn it away in places, leaving the depth of colour of the bronze beneath.
Once it must have been attached to a base of some sort, as you can see from the bottom. The statue still stands perfectly sturdily.
Ormolu is one of my favourite materials and this statue will look fabulous in and religious or eclectic display.
