$66.00

Sold

This is a striking antique crucifix from France. This is a simple unembellished crucifix with only a skull and crossbones beneath Christ’s feet and the INRI above His head. The skull at the base of the cross has several symbolic meanings: Christ’s victory over death; Christ as the New Adam crucified on Golgotha “the Place of the Skull” believed to be where Adam is buried; as well as a memento mori - a reminder of the Four Last Things: Death, Judgement, Heaven, and Hell.

The cross is made of lightweight wood painted a deep black while the corpus is metal with a brass colored finished. The base has a peg shape indicating that this was once part of a larger piece.

Dimensions: 8” tall x 3.5” wide and .25” thick
