Crucifix
17th Century
Christ: Molave
Christ: H: 42" x L: 39" x W: 8 1/2"
H: 107 cm x L: 99 cm x W: 22 cm
Cross: Kamagong Wood
Cross: H: 101" x L: 56" x W: 1 3/4"
H: 257 cm x L: 142 cm x W: 3 cm

Provenance:
Northern Luzon

Every church during the colonial period usually had a large crucifix, either at the altar on along the side of the nave for the veneration of the faithful. The early pieces were usually carved from molave and, being of such durable material, have withstood the test of time.

This finely sculpted crucifix has a classic pose very similar to Michaelangelo’s 16th century carving of the same subject. The body is anatomically correct and the pose is extremely restful, unlike most statues that depict Christ in the throes of agony.
