The Wooden Romanesque
There’s a wonderful old, fine, wooden sculpture in the country parish church in Skelleftea . It depicts the Virgin
Mary, and is made out of walnut on the 12th century.
It is one of the best preserved Romanesque sculptures from that period , also probably carved by artisans in West Germany. It is well worth a visit, as well as the church.
When I’m looking at the this sculpture , I use to wonder how the model of this romanesque looked like.
One a time it was painted, and I will try to fill in some colors, and make research about how the Madonna was painted originally.
Further on I will publish my version, so wait and look.
