Christ our King like no other Walnut Wood Catholic Wall Crucifix. Realistic Pewter French Corpus of Christ. Measures a large 18" x 9"
Upon opening the box, you will be immediately drawn to the stunning representation of Jesus, which will touch your heart and soul. This exquisite Crucifix and the body of Christ is a recast from an antique French corpus of Christ.
The Corpus of Christ is a recast using the finest Pewter without lead that will last for generations to come.
Quality Pewter with its high tin content allows for intricate designs and details, while also providing durability and resistance to tarnishing. To be considered "quality" pewter, the alloy must meet certain standards for purity and composition, such as containing at least 92% tin in the United States. It is valued for its beauty, versatility, and longevity. And this corpus of Christ was made in America.
Skilled artisans and workshops in France produced metal corpuses of Christ during the nineteenth century, creating highly detailed and ornate pieces. The workshop of Maison Poussielgue-Rusand in Paris was notable for its high-quality metalwork, including religious art. Other notable artisans included Henri-Auguste Fourdinois and Albert-Ernest Carrier-Belleuse, who used various techniques such as casting, forging, electroplating, and metal stamping to produce these metal corpuses. The one you see here has been forged in pewter. And is most likely from one of these artisans.
The black walnut wood, with its deep black finish cross creates a visual contrast that places the entire focus on Jesus and enhances the life-like representation of his body and facial features. The hand-polished silver shine and hand-painted gold Crown of Thorns and garment add a beautiful touch to this already stunning piece, making it the perfect addition to any home. The INRI sign which has been engraved, gold filled is an added touch like no other.
Crafted with skillful craftsmanship and exceptional attention to detail, this one-of-a-kind piece is a masterpiece that will leave a lasting impression on anyone who sees it or holds it, inspiring reverence, and awe. It is a rare find only found here that will be cherished for generations to come and represents "Christ our King" in a magnificent light.
