Beautiful trio of Italian hand-carved gilded wooden reliquaries containing tiny remains of Saints or some other religious figure. Original with seals to the rear. Very rare pieces.
A reliquary (also referred to as a shrine) is a container for relics. These may be the purported or actual physical remains of saints, such as bones, pieces of clothing, or some object associated with saints or other religious figures. Reliquaries provide a means of protecting and displaying relics.
