A hand-carved wood crucifix measures 21cm long (approx 8.3 inches) with a hand painted, full color corpra on a bent wood cross.
Carved from the finest kiln dried lindenwood from the forests of the Italian Alps - this is a wonderful example of Val Gardena artistry.
In the valleys of northern Italy's Alps the Bernardi family of artisans have been creating exquisite nativities, crucifixes and statuary generation after generation for over 400 years. Each unique piece is then hand stained, painted and gilded with impeccable attention to detail - no two exactly alike.
Their work has been chosen to grace the churches, villas, cathedrals and homes of Europe for 400 years, and now, this beautiful statuary will be available in the United States from In His Name Catholic Store.
Boxed with certificate of Val Gardena design.
