Flemish school from the 16th century. Madonna with apple. Carved and polychrome wood sculpture. The apple evokes the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, symbol of desire, of sin. Of temptation and discord, which was personified in mother Eve through which sin and evil entered Humanity. Mary is the remedy to all this, the antithesis, the new Eve through which mankind recovers divine grace and favor. 92 x 40 x 27 cm.
