14" Baroque Italian Crucifx. Hand-painted alabaster corpus on wood cross. Made in Italy!
Beautiful Happy Death Crucifix with metal finish with traditional skull & crossbones at bottom with black inlay. Made in Italy!
Unlike others on the market, this beautiful, Italian Crucifix has the skull and crossbones at our Saviors feet, which is highly sought after.
The skull and bones have many symbolic meanings. All Catholics are encouraged to meditate on the “Four Last Things - Death and Judgment, Heaven and Hell”, so that they will live in a state of grace and prepare themselves for Heaven. The skull is a great reminder of human mortality. Jesus Christ was crucified on Golgotha - “the place of the skull”. There is a legend that Christ, the New Adam, who conquered sin and death, was crucified on the gravesite of the first man, Adam, who brought sin and death into the world through his disobedience to God. The skull is a symbol of Adam’s grave. Most important of all, the skull and bones are placed beneath Jesus’ feet, to show that He triumphed over death and sin on our behalf.
