Primitive style hand carved crucifix with a beautiful with a beautiful wooden cross painted with blue, silver and red details. Blood stains and wounds are appreciably realistic; the figure has a white cloth. The image vividly demonstrates the suffering of Jesus\' final tribulation on the Cross with blood details on hands, feet and knees. Notice the carefully carved hair and beard details highlighted by the Crown of Thorns and the metal aureole. The piece rests on a wooden stand with golden details. The roman legend "INRI" rest on the cross\' top. INRI is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase IESVS NAZARENVS REX IVDAEORVM, which translates to English as: "Jesus the Nazarene, the King of the Jews". Many crucifixes and other depictions of the crucifixion include a stylized plaque or parchment, called a titulus or title, bearing the letters INRI, occasionally carved directly into the cross, and usually just above the figure of Jesus.
