Hand Carved Altar Crucifix

Regular price €167.80

A late 1800s hand carved figure of Christ in wood, 2 3/4" head to toe, and mounted on the old original 9 7/16" tall alter cross in stand, exquisitely preserved. This crucifix used to be in some elegant private home, or some church in France. The devotionnal piece features a relaxed spent Christ whose head is downcast and in acceptance of his impending death. Under the foot, there is a tiny hand carved skull. For a such small carving, the details are really fine, you can see each fingers and toes. A superb work of art.

Good condition for age and type. Please take a close look at the photos. The only flaws to note are the fragility of the arms. The Christ body is made of 3 parts and the arms tend to peel off. There are some traces of gilt on the wooden base (see picture5).

Height of Christ: 2 3/4" (7cm)
Cross height: 9 7/16" (24cm)
Weight: 112g
