Sacred Art – Gold Gilt Corbel

Gilded woodcarving is a sculptural technique in which wood is carved (sculpted) and then gilded. This technique, mainly associated with architecture, had a period of great application in the Iberian Peninsula and its colonies during the Baroque period, where the play of volumes was emphasised. It became one of the main Baroque coinages in northern Portugal.

The Corbel is a very common example from that period, traditionally used to support a figure, bust or vase.
