This paper mache bust is designed from an antique European Virgin Mary statue. The bust looks very much like wood, but she is completely paper mache.
She is painted in a distressed tan and ivory finish, and has a tiny French style waist. Her arms are in an upward facing position, and she has been molded with the indentations to emulate the split wood on the original piece. Her crown is also part of the mold, and it is not removable.
Measurements from the top of her head to the base are 9 inches tall, plus another 3.5 inches for the crown. Her base is 5.5 inches wide and 4.5 inches deep - however, her total depth is 5.5 inches, as her head and crown lean forward. Shoulder to shoulder, she is about 4 inches wide.
She is shown holding the mother of pearl ex-voto, which is not included,
