Large Wedding Crucifix

Large Wedding Crucifix Hand Carved from Linden Wood.

In this work, Christ's facial features have been reduced to stylized abbreviations that are less detailed in their descriptiveness. His hands and feet are flattened and the feet are joined into a single five-toed limb.

The wrap and ribs are rendered as simplified to geometric linear abstractions. The linear accent of the rills at once lightens the density of the wood and highlights the subtlety of the carving's design elements.

Height: 17 inches
