Frame. Carved wood. Late 17th century-beginning 18th century. Rectangular frame that presents a “base structure” of straight lines, combining moldings of different widths and finishes (inside, a golden band with fine vegetal details towards the corners; then, a thin red one, and a wider green one, these two the latter imitating marble; on the outside, another fine gilded molding), enhanced with a series of carvings of plant elements in the corners (symmetrical composition), two ovoid elements on the longer sides and a very elaborate cresting with plant elements, seed beads, volutes, flowers and imitation fabrics (which join with those ovoid elements mentioned). The combination of red, green and gold is common in certain types of frames (compare, for example, the Salamanca terracotta made around the mid-16th century by Juan de Juni that is preserved in the Victoria and Albert Museum). A series of carvings with a lot of movement and depth have been added to it, showing the influence of the Baroque (reminiscent in certain details of works such as the frame of the Immaculate Conception by Alonso Cano in the Cathedral of Malaga).
