Over 10 inch tall wall crucifix in ceramic, made in Belgium in the 1950s. Christ in ivory color, hand-painted over a glossy cross in deep shades of green.

DIMENSIONS

10.5 in. H x 8.25 in. W x 1.25 in. D

27 cm H x 21 cm W x 3 cm D

This crucifix would blend seamlessly in a warmly colored Italian room or an ultra minimal loft sanctuary with Rick Owens furniture. For both the Postmodern goth and art historian. Timeless beauty personifying the link between the past and the present.

This piece is part of a 69 piece ceramic crucifix collection, all made in Belgium between the 1950s and late 1970s. From modernism to brutalism, they range from being as futurist as a modernist church to as raw as a Brutalist building. Each artist offered a different take on the representation of faith through volumes and colors. The 69 piece collection offers great choice to compose a custom wall of modernist crucifixes.
