   Pair of small angels in carved fruitwood, circa 1650
 
 
     

 

 

   Adorable pair of angels bearing the instruments of the Passion carved in fruitwood by a master hand. The art of the sculptor gave this small sculptures remarkable monumentality, especially in the cherub supporting the column.
