Item/Description: Vintage ca 1920s-1950s "Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ - Pointing Hand in Peace Sign Benediction Pose” 3-dimensional religious wall plaque display.
The 3-d imagery depicted by this handpainted, exquisitely and vibrantly colored, rare and unique Christian religion-themed large-sized metal wall hanging is that of the "Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior Son of God Conferring His Blessings Upon His Flock and Granting Forgiveness to All Sinners," with his three-dimensional plaster/chalkware hand protruding outwards in a gesture of conferring his blessings upon his adherents.
Clever features of this iconic symbol of Christianity wall plaque are the protruding figural sculpturalness of Jesus’ right hand (the “Pointing Hand of Jesus” - it really brings the wall hanging to life), and the fact that the hand is completely removable (it screws on/off).
What a marvelous addition this strikingly attractive work of art would make to any religious artifacts collection!

Condition Summary: Good vintage collectible condition, retaining stunning and remarkably vibrant coloration, albeit in need of paint touch-ups/refinishing. The removable hand evinces a prior repair attempt towards the back part of the wrist where it apparently was once damaged (not readily visible given the angle at which the hand rests, so not a detraction from the aesthetics of this piece). Thus, it does not screw tightly back onto the plaque, however it does stay attached once it is screwed on. One could easily, however, permanently glue it on.
