Ivory Sculpture ( Fragment)

Left arm of the Crucified with a stem also made of ivory, to be inserted into the shoulder. Tiny vein modeling on the inner face and hole of the hand for the nail of the cross, and carved fingernails.

Additional Analysis:
Due to the invoice and the way of representing the fingers, it can be identified as a colonial, Hispanic-Filipino piece.
