Our Lady of Grace

Our Lady of Grace - 21 inches
Columbus Statue Studio - mid 1950s
An ebay rescue


Typically, these vintage statues were Blessed by the parish priest, often received as a Baptism or Confirmation gift and venerated for years by their Faithful owners. Most have many holes, chips and years of dirt. In the 1950s the factories were turning them out so quickly that they were never really painted properly --- just a few quick passes with a paint sprayer. I find joy in taking the time to repair, paint and varnish them so that they're ready for another 50 years or more of devotion.
