Spanish School, XIX century. "Christ Sacred Heart". Carved and polychrome wood. Silver plated metal border. Presents restorations in one hand. Needs cleaning. Measurements: 72 x 30 x 25 cm. Polychrome wood carving worked in round bulk. A crowned Christ wearing a long tunic exhibits his Sacred Heart printed on his chest, symbol of divine love. The devotion to the Sacred Heart had its origin in a mystical current centered on the person of Jesus Christ, who conceived the heart as the vital center and expression of his surrender and unconditional love. In this sense, devotion to the Sacred Heart is inspired by the Gospel of St. John: "Before the feast of the Passover, Jesus, knowing that his hour had come to pass from this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, loved them to the end".
