Ivory Sculpture Hand (Fragment)

Arm fragment of a figure. The hand lacks a little finger. The sleeve corresponds to a Franciscan habit. The fingers are very stylized and the nails are square and have flattened tips.

Reasoned Classification It is a very fine piece to be colonial, although the way the nails are made it seems to be of Spanish-Filipino invoice.
Cataloging Estella Marcos, Margarita Mercedes; Simal Lopez, Mercedes
