Wall Crucifix in Ceramic, Hand-Painted, White, Sienna, Made in Belgium, 1950s

About

Eleven inch tall wall crucifix in ceramic, made in Belgium in the 1950s. Beige and rust-colored christ forming a cross. The head stares towards the bottom in a similar way to the Art Deco sculpture Christ the Redeemer over Rio de Janeiro that probably inspired the artist. When a few lines say a lot; a very charismatic piece. This piece is part of a 69 piece ceramic crucifix collection, all made in Belgium between the 1950 and late 1970s. From modernism to brutalism, they range from being as futurist as a modernist church to as raw as a Brutalist building. Each artist offered a different take on the representation of faith through volumes and colors. The 69 piece collection offers great choice to compose a custom wall of modernist crucifixes.
