A Cimabue Inspired Italian Crucifix

Today I wished to share some new woodwork coming from ALBL Oberammergau in the form of a medieval Italian inspired crucifix.

It is now resident in a private chapel located in California.

Finally, for those among you who are interested in the process, here is the work prior to its colouration. You can see what a very different character it has without it.
