Wonderful antique 18th to 19th century carved wood Christ sculpture or corpus, unique Medieval style with fabulous decorative appeal and displayed on a 17" solid wood crucifix! Isn't this one interesting! We're not quite as religious as most but I simply love these old hand carved religious pieces and figures! This one depicting Christ in an expired position, head downcast and eyes closed. Nice size, too, the figure is 9" tall including His upstretched arms (8 1/8" tall from head to toe). The cross is in solid wood, rather plain and possibly not original, and measures 17 1/8" x 8 3/4". A fine piece, whether it's the devotional or decorative (or both) aspects you find alluring. One of several wonderful old carved religious figures that we're listing or working at listing so be sure to browse some while you're with us. Thanks!
Good condition. The 'INRI" plaque above the figure has no inscription. As noted above, the cross is in solid wood but possibly not original to the figure. The corpus is in fine shape with chips at the shoulder areas on both arms, chips to the fingers of the right hand and a chip to the side of the right foot. An wonderful piece!
