Description

Two similar carved wood reliquary busts with the original polychrome and gilt decoration, each in the form of a portrait bust of a Roman youth with long, wavy hair secured with a gilded band, the draped robes also gilded. Each also carved with an oval cavity, retaining traces of red paint, in which would have been placed a holy relic. Made in Italy around 1680.
