This hand-carved wood crucifix measures 31cm long (approx 12 inches) with a hand painted, antiqued color corpus on a Trinity budded end wood cross.
The antiqued finish uses a craquele technique that makes the surface show very small breaks that give the piece an aged look.
Carved from the finest kiln dried lindenwood from the forests of the Italian Alps.
In the valleys of northern Italy's Alps the Bernardi family of artisans have been creating exquisite nativities 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.
