Product DescriptionItalian artistry is superb and we are proud to offer this hand carved, wooden crucifix from Italy. What distinguishes this wooden crucifix is the 'Val Gardena' (Italy) tradition used by skilled Italian artisans. The Val Gardena tradition goes back to the Middle Ages and this wooden crucifix demonstrates how the generations of the master carvers from this area perfected their art. Made of Linden wood, the stylized features on the wooden crucifix are expressive enough to stir anyone's heart.
Called a 'Corpus Pisa', the wooden crucifix is left in natural coloring of the wood and the crossbeam on the cross is curved slightly. The wooden crucifix has no color glazing on it, but the cross has the look of a 'hand hewn' carving texture giving it life and visual interest. The corpus measures approximately 8-1/2 inches high and the cross is 18 inches high making it suitable for display in a chapel, meditation area, in your home. In addition, this wooden crucifix makes an outstanding wedding gift for any couple that puts Christ at the center of their lives. This wooden crucifix is available in other sizes and with coloring.
