A very special collectible! Extremely rare. A wonderful depiction of San Camilo de Lelis, the patron saint of the sick and nurses. He is ministering last rites as small devils and angels compete for the dying man's departing soul. In very good vintage condition. See photos. Beautiful custom frame and matte (depth of matte prevents glass from coming in contact with retablo). Glass has UV protection.
