Temptation of the Faith

Ae rectangular cast, 108.3 x 95.3 mm; 370.5 g; brown patina with traces of gilding

 

Faith, lying in a forest with a cross at her feet, is surrounded by monsters. Two figures can be seen behind a tree trunk (one hooded); in the background view of a city with smoking chimneys. Splendid and rare contemporary casting
