Large Art Deco Crucifix with Figure of Mary Magdalene

$224.00

Large Art Deco Crucifix with Figure of Mary Magdalene

$224.00

This is a wonderfully detailed antique crucifix. The cross and corpus are simple and elegant, typical of the Art Deco period. Positioned at Christ’s feet is the lone figure of Mary Magdalene kneeling with her hands clasped in prayer. Her sorrow and despair are palpable.

A particularly striking aspect is the large skull resting at Mary's knees. Traditionally, the skull at the foot of the cross had several 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, and a memento mori - a reminder of death and the final four things.

 

Condition: The figure and cross are a bit loose, but these could be easily tightened.

Dimensions: Cross - 15” tall; Base - 6” wide x 4” tall

Shipping: $25
