Enthroned Virgin and Child
This statuette of the Virgin and Child was produced at a time when Paris was the principal European center of ivory carving. The sensitively carved face of the Virgin generates a tender aura, presenting her as a loving mother rather than the Queen of Heaven. The head of the child Jesus is a modern replacement.
