The Relics

I’m keeping my comments to a minimum here as the images can be a bit evocative. Please use discretion.

I have to assume this is intended to be a miniature Statue of the Crowned Virgin Mary and Child. I have so many unanswered questions here.. this is not the traditional depiction I would expect to see.

Next are the four fabrics that are fused into the resin. They each appear to have the letters “Rel” (short for Relic?) followed by a name or initial. They also have the remnants of an old wax seal next to each.  They’re listed clockwise from the top.

Finally the cloth relics under the woodcut images of Saints. I would expect they’re attributed to the Saint from the woodcut.

If you have questions about anything specific in the images please feel free to post them in the comments and I’ll try to answer to the best of my knowledge.

Thanks and God Bless!
