Vintage 1976 Carving/sculpting of Jesus Christ into a Block of Wood by Amsterdam, NY Artist/Sculptor Matthew Orante. Matthew worked most of his life in Amsterdam as a haberdasher going back to 1952. He opened a shop on Market in 1964 that he shared with his wife's business. However, he found the time for his passion, the art he created. Not only did he carve but he painted and was known to have made violins as well. This is just one of his special works and it signed by him. It is fairly priced at $129 and I will pay for the shipping in the USA. Shipping outside of the USA is negotiable with the seller, just ask me.
