Description
New World, Spanish Colonial, Mexico / Mesoamerica, ca. 19th century CE (larger); early 20th century CE (more petite). A pair of hand-carved wood santos depicting Franciscan friars, each wearing their traditional hooded robe and a tonsured coiffure, and enveloped in liberal remains of white, peach, blue, and brown pigments.
