058 - Putto On Seahorse Sculpture
A great hand carved putto seated on a very decorated seahorse, a typical sea element. The seahorse is drilled for water. This Putto is entirely hand-carved by our sculptor in Vicenza stone, nice with a finishing patina as image. A putto is a figure of an infant often depicted as a young male. Putti are defined as chubby, winged or wingless, male child figure in nude. Putti are distinct from cherubim, but some English-speakers confuse them with each other, except that in the plural, "the Cherubim" refers to the biblical angels. While "cherubs" represent the second order of angels, putti are secular, profane and present a non-religious passion. However, in the Baroque period of art, the putto came to represent the omnipresence of God.
