Description

1970s Vintage Wood and Gilded Brass Wall Crucifix

Close to death, Jesus looked up to heaven and spoke the words "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!" and then he died (Luke 23:46). The crucifix is a powerful image. Unlike a simple cross, the wall crucifix features the figure of Christ being crucified. It is a powerful symbol of Catholicism, representing the focal point of the Catholic belief: that Jesus died on the cross to redeem humanity.

This crucifix is crafted from solid hardwood and brass. The wood is hand applied with a clear protective coat that enhances the natural wood grain and adds a warm color to the finish. The corpus and the scroll banner are forged in brass with gold gilt finish. The corpus is well detailed. We see a Christ whose sculptural body is depicted with agony and torment—from the arms that are thrown wide in a gesture of suffering, the open mouth, the head raised heavenward with eyes haunted by pain and the loincloth that is powerfully rendered to show the depth of the waist.

The sculpted cross stands 20" high x 10" wide x 5/8" thick. Near the base of the verso of the cross is a secret compartment covered with a tin metal plate. Printed on the tin plate are the words "Jesus in Thy Holy Keeping Guard the Lives Recorded Here, Bless Each Glad Event and Jesus Bless Us All Each Day each Year." In the hollow compartment may be kept a small piece of paper with your Catholic family history. Also on the back is a metal ring for easy wall mounting. Imperfections of note are the stray spots in the corpus with some gilt loss. Will ship boxed via USPS Priority Mail.
