The collection also features a three-tiered mini-altar adorned with various representations of the Holy Mother including Our Lady of Sorrows and a rare image of the legendary Lady of Loreto.
A hodgepodge of antique and contemporary religious art, this is an anthology of exquisite taste. The Collection features towering figures of the Catholic Church founding patriarchs St. Peter, the first pope, and St. Paul, the first international evangelist; and ivory and wooden depiction of the Holy Family's Flight to Egypt from the persecution of Herod.
The soft, smooth, and flowing style of the porcelain masters of Lladro is evident in this collection of Madonna and Child contemporary art. On loan is a collection of Faberge Easter eggs.
