Allegory of Religion (late 1630s)

The oldest source mentioning this work is a handwritten essay on sculpture by Orfeo Boselli. He says that he made the Allegories of Religion and Wisdom  and a series of angels for the high altar in the Dominican convent of Soriano that was consecrated in 1640. The stature was sculpted at the end of the 1630s and was set into the altar gable. It is clearly classical in style with its well-balanced face and careful draping. The draping was partially modified when the statue was moved to the balustrade of the eighteenth century altar. During restoration work the head and hand, which were fortunately found, have been repositioned.
