Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a religious Mary and the infant Jesus painting inspired by italian art, but painted by an unknown talented amateur artist in the second half of the 20th century. The composition is quite good, the applied gold color sheet metal is inspired by italian art or icons. Information on the artist Pika is not available on any of the art related data bases. The estimate is based on similar offered or sold at auction.
