Stunning Mahogany & Kingwood Inlaid Crucifix with a Bronzed Corpus of Christ

About

Exceptional wooden cross with a highly detailed corpus with maker's marks. This handcrafted work of religious art from early 20th century France, is a real eyecatcher. The combination of the warm colors of the beautifully inlaid, wooden cross and the small, but highly detailed corpus is truly impressive. The finest quality of both these handcrafted pieces makes their combination even more powerful. What we find amazing is how the sculptor of the relatively small corpus has managed to create such incredibly fine and accurate details. It looks like this is Christ in His early hours on the cross and His confused and agonizing facial expression leads us to believe that, whilst looking up at the sky, here He is thinking "my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?" The highly skilled sculptor left us the monogram G.D. (image 6), but unfortunately we don't know who he or she was. The word 'depose' tells us that this stylish antique is of French origin. If you are just as impressed with the quality and detail as we are then you will love our price. Especially when taken into account that perfect packing and worldwide delivery from our store to your door in just 4 workdays are complimentary. Maximum height x width x depth: 21.4 x 11.8 x 2 inches. We have a passion for the unique, for quality, for stylish & meaningful and for craftsmanship of years gone by. Your purchases will be extremely well packaged and we look forward to serving you (again). You can shop all our 1000+ listings by pushing the button that reads 'View All From Seller'.
