Wood and Ceramic Crucifix with Memento Mori

$144.00

This is a captivating antique crucifix. The wooden cross is mounted on a ceramic pedestal decorated with a memento mori skull and highlighted with faded gold trim. The ceramic corpus is held to the crucifix with small pins capped with red glass beads, indicative of Christ’s bloody wounds. The front of the base displays Our Lord’s Sacred Heart surrounded by a golden Crown of Thorns.

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, and a memento mori - a reminder of death and the Four Last Things.

Condition: The left hand is broken. Please see pictures.

Dimensions: 8.5” tall x 3.75” wide x 3.5" deep
