Story

The winged cherub in the clouds image on this 18k yellow gold pendant is faithfully patterned after the 16th century oil painting “Sistine Madonna” by Raphael. While resting his elbows in the clouds with left hand cupping his chin, the cherub casts his eyes upward. In the original masterpiece the cherub is with another winged angel both of whom watch as Mary, flanked by St. Barbara and St. Sixtus holds the Christ child. The circular pendant has a surround of tiny natural seed pearls wired to the edge. It is signed “MJ” or “JM” to the front at the bottom left corner near the cherub’s elbow

Date: Circa 1910.
