Catalogue Note

This fantastical devotional Infant Christ in a Baldachino finds its closest closest comparison in an Indo-Portuguese, Goan, example in the Victoria and Albert Museum (inv. no. IM.16-1915). Note the similar hanging ornaments. The ivory Christ, however, recalls Hispano-Philippine models, compare with those illustrated in Estella Marcos (op. cit., nos. 23-26). The present Baldachino has wonderful detailing, in particular the silver filigree bird at the top and the chandeliers suspended from the canopy.
