Very Rare 1835 Santos Crucifix Made By Jose Rafael Aragon From New Mexico

THIS SANTOS I HAD ORIGINALLY LISTED AS BEING MADE BY FAMED ARTISAN JOSE ORTEGA. SOMEONE WAS KIND ENOUGH TO GIVE ME HIS OPINION ON IT AND KNOWLEGE THAT HE BELIEVED STRONGLY IT WAS NOT AN ORTEGA BUT AN ARAGON. I BROUGHT THIS TO THE ATTENTION OF MY PARENTS WHO THIS BELONGS TO AND MY FATHER REALIZED HE MIXED UP THE TWO HE HAD, SO THIS ONE IS THE ORIGINAL JOSE RAFAEL ARAGON SANTOS FROM NEW MEXICO.

HIS WORKS ARE KNOWN THROUGHOUT THE WORLD YET HE MAINTAINED A CLOISTERED LIFE. HIS WORKING IN SANTA FE BROUGHT HIM COMMISSIONS TO CARVE THE ALTAR SCREENS AT THE CHURCH OF SAN LORENZO AT PICURIS PUEBLO IN 1825. HIS WORK IS DISPLAYED IN MANY OF THE CHURCHES IN THE GREATER SANTA FE AREA. THIS PIECE SHOWN IS DATED TO APPROX: 1835. ORIGINAL APPRAISAL FOR THIS WAS FOR CONSIDERABLY MORE.

PLEASE LOOK ON THE INTERNET FOR MORE INFO ON THIS FAMED CARVER, HIS WORKS ARE SO VALUABLE AND HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER. ANY SANTOS BY THIS ARTIST IS NOT ONLY RARE, THIS ONE IS AN ORIGINAL UNTOUCHED ONE. SEE PICS FOR ACTUAL CONDITION.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF ART SHOWING NORMAL WEAR CONSISTENT WITH THE AGE. THE MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROX: 19" TALL BY 14" WIDE. THIS CRUCIFIX BELONGS TO MY PARENTS AND THEY HAVE HAD IT IN THEIR HOME FOR OVER 40 YEARS, ALONG WITH ANOTHER SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT ONE. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR WOULD LIKE A COPY OF THE PAPER WORK I HAVE ON FILE PERTAINING TO THIS PIECE PLEASE FEEL FREE TO MESSAGE ANYTIME.
