A wooden polychrome sculpture of Pensive Christ by an unknown author from the 2nd half of the 19th century, coming from the village of Borowa in the district of Tarnów; it was originally located in a box roadside shrine. This is an image of a pensive Jesus, which is the most characteristic depiction of the Saviour in Polish folk art: he is sitting, supporting his head, in a crown of thorns, with his silhouette slightly bent forward, clad in a perizoma and coat (here red, tied in a knot).
This small sculpture, unfortunately heavily damaged, appears to have been produced in a folk artist's workshop. The composition of the figurine bears the features of simple, concise Naïve Art, with a tragic expression on the face, full of expression. The sculpture used to stand in a chapel by the road from Borowa to Paleśnica, on the estate belonging to Leokadia Jędrzejczak (No. 8).
