Description: 

A beautiful 19th century, hand carved solid stone allegorical putto with a harvested sheaf of wheat. One of four putti that represent the four seasons, this one being 'Summer'. This decorative statue would work make a stunning statement inside the home, or outside in the garden. Circa 1850.  Putti are commonly confused with, yet are completely unrelated to, cherubim. Cherubim refer to the biblical angels, which have four heads of different species and several pairs of wings. While cherubs represent the second order of angels, putti are secular and present a non-religious passion. However, in the Baroque period of art, the putto came to represent the omnipresence of God. SHIPPING We can arrange specialist antiques shipping and insurance from our base in the UK to locations in Europe and the USA.
