Carved Wood Crucifix
$195
Ideabooks3
Questions0
This German crucifix is a classic example of the carving techniques demonstrated by the Black Forest School of wood carving. There is a gestural quality to the carving, not unlike the vigorous nature of abstract expressionist painting. The figure and cross were carved from dark hardwood - the finish has deepened and darkened with age.
