Madonna of the Streets
This figurine is from a painting by Roberto Ferruzzi in the 1890s. It was titled 'Madonnina' or 'Little Mother' and became popular in Italy. It shows vulnerability and sweetness in the face of the mother as she holds her young child. People also see in it the challenge to open your heart to help others less fortunate.
The statue 'Madonna of the Streets' is by Joseph's Studio, a division of Roman. Joseph's Studio's talent lies in its ability to recapture the renaissance style of sculpting and painting, and the attention to detail in the face, hair, hands, and feet.
This figurine measures 9" high and is made of a resin-stone mix. It comes in a gift box.
