A good early 19th century Spanish colonial Santa Maria 'bastidor'.
In the 18th and 19th centuries, the fabrication of a fine santo, figural madonna, bulto or bastidor, was usually followed the fashioning of equally fine apparel -- made from hand spun silk, embroidered, brocaded and ornamented with metallic threads. Bastidor -- the Spanish word for 'frame,' was the name given to a conical cage based figure. The slatted cage frame was covered by a taut cloth wrapped skirt which added volume and dimension to the elaborate costume that it supported.
Unlike most other bastidor, this figure comes with the cloth wrapped skirt intact. The small cubby in the back was used for the storage of precious relics.
Dimensions: 23 inches high.
In overall excellent, original condition with only minor paint loss.
