This French manufactured crucifix was completely carved from ivory, including the INRI plate and the Memento Mori.
It is very rare to find a complete crucifix of such sculptural quality! You can even see the raised veins and the open mouth with carved teeth and tongue!
It is mounted on an oval wooden support and enclosed by a coeval hand-blown glass.
The frame has preserved and protected the crucifix over time. It is still in excellent condition!
Dimensions: oval 59x45 cm, Christ 28 cm.
It comes with a certificate attesting the sculpture’s dating and origin, in accordance with the CITES regulations (picture no. 13), signed by Tomassi.
