Set of Wood and Gold Leaf Crucifixion Sculptures
A set of finely hand-carved wooden figural scenes, decorated with gold leaf, depicting two integral events of the crucifixion of Christ. In each composition, figural groupings surround the cross that is mounted into the naturalized rocky ground; the first illustrates the crucifixion, the second the deposition from the cross. The works capture the raw emotion and energy of each integral moment of the event; the figures are highly expressive and heighten the overall emotive power of the works. Measures: 18 x 15 ½ x 6 in.
