Saint Mary Magdalene

A friend of Sagunt asked me if I could make a wood copy of a polychromed image. The image is of Saint Mary Magdalene made of terracotta and more than 200 years old. I was undecided, because it was very complicated and I had never polychromed a wood carving. In the end I said I would try and we would see the result.

The image has a height of 37 cm. counting the rock. It is carved from linden wood and polychromed in oil.
