Stunning Church Altar Crucifix with Bronze Sculptures of Christ Mary John

About

Large and exceptional work of religious art. If you are a collector of truly exceptional church artefacts then this early 20th century altar piece could be perfect for you. With church related antiques as one of our specialties we know that you will rarely find a better quality altar crucifix from this era. Both the corpus of Christ and the sculptures of Mary and Saint John mourning on either side are of a quality and beauty that is unsurpassed and you just don't find this kind of beauty and quality on the open market. The flowing, Art Nouveau style of the posture of Mary and John too tell us that this piece was created around 1900-1910. The small bronze maker's plaque at the bottom right tells us that this unique church relic was made by A.H. Haan of Antwerp, but unfortunately we don't know the name of the artist who designed the amazing bronze sculptures. The plaque also reads 'ornements d'eglise' which means church ornaments and it is clear they were specialists and top quality makers. This unique and handcrafted crucifix of considerable size and weight is in excellent condition and its quality and condition makes it suitable for the most beautiful of churches and monasteries. The details of the draped clothes, the depth in the bronze, the beautiful body and face of Christ and the amazing patina against the brass and oak background are some of the stunning elements that make this crucifix very impressive. Together they give even more weight to its profound meaning. This antique is great value for money. Also, because our price includes perfect packing and worldwide shipping from our store to your door in just 4 days. Maximum height x width x depth 46.4 x 33.75 x 6 inches. We have a passion for the unique, for quality, for stylish yet practical and for craftsmanship of years gone by. Your purchases will be extremely well packaged and we look forward to serving you (again).
