Extremely poor condition. The backside of the mask was covered in worm wood holes and the wrapping that was around the mask had large deposits of saw dust from all the perforations. Leaving the mask very fragile. Contacted the seller but never heard back from them. They never provided a photo of the backside of the mask for obvious reasons. Very deceptive

Fantastic Corpus of Jesus carving with a lot of character! A real gem. Pictures didn't do it justice. Absolutely love it. Can't say enough good things. Fast delivery. Highly recommended seller. Thanks!

The item was just as described/ seen in the pictures. Aside from the markings of age, it was in perfect, solid condition. The shop owner provided additional information about the piece on request. I will enjoy having this piece for many years to come!

Stopping by hazard on this item, then few days coming back again and just looking. Kind of obsession, it s hard to explain. The expression of his face, the colors , the fact that is made from wood... I loved it instantaneously. The contact with the seller just added to this beautiful experience. Thank you again. And again🙂

Collector of figurines since childhood, world traveler, and baseball history artist.
I've been collecting tribal art and ethnographic carvings for years. Recently, my interest focused in on antique and vintage Santos from the Spanish Colonial diaspora, especially the Philippines. I thought Etsy would be a good place to share some of this collection and have been pleased with the connections that I have made so far.
This is my motto:
"Whatever the culture, there can be no more important art than that used as an aid for communicating with the divine. I have always found devotional artifacts fascinating to collect; there is no better way to connect with a past culture than through the objects that were important to it. Collecting Santos figures is particularly gratifying. The subject, the style and the methods of production combine to tell the tale of what the individuals in that culture valued."
My primary business has to do with vintage baseball history. I've come up with a an art form that was inspired by the baseball cards of my youth. I've created my own series and have found quite the following for them on eBay. Learn more on my website: http://helmarbrewing.com/
With both the vintage carvings and the baseball cards, I am drawn to the human touch, to the wear and tear of handling and use. Objects and humans rubbing off on each other....
Don't hesitate to contact me for more information on my shop or other interests! Thank you for stopping by!
