This important piece was the backdrop of a side altar dedicated to the Virgin Mary in a now disused church in Venice. It features the most detailed hand-engraved metal thread decor with painted flowers, material, canvas, and wood trim. Engraving reads "Maria". Such truly unique pieces are mostly used as dramatic backdrops for statues, sculptures, paintings or to accommodate an indoor water feature. Circa 18th century.

The canopy is 36in high, 40in wide, 20in deep.
