I've been anxious lately about finishing this crucifix. A while back I had decided to reproduce another corpus from the large mold and it has been lying around waiting for time and inspiration. Alas I found my inspiration in a 27'' distressed metal cross. It had this old world feel to it and so I brought it home and then my mind started pondering. I accented the metal cross with 22 k gold leaf and finished the plaster corpus to look like white marble. As soon as I can find my plaster I will repair the fingers which don't seem to come out of the mold very well. I'm pleased with how it turned out, I love old things especially old world art. And this hits the spot! I was thinking of offering this for sale at our Church book store, but I haven't quite made up my mind to part with it yet.
