An ivory carving of The Virgin and Child
Philippines, early 17th century
With long hair flowing across her shoulders and back, clad in a robe naturalistically draped to her feet and bound at her waist, and a mantle patterned with rhombi tucked in at the back, in her right hand she holds a rosary, her fingers tenderly supporting The Child's foot as he sits in her left arm, dressed in a tunic and displaying the gesture of blessing.
