This is a wonderful antique crucifix. The corpus, INRI sign, and memento mori beneath Christ’s feet are also metal. The reverse has an elegant Crown of Thorns at the center of the cross. It is fairly heavy and would have been worn either as a pectoral cross or at the end of a monk’s or nun’s large rosary.
Skull & Crossbones
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, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell.
