This lovely standing crucifix was for home and also might have been taken with the family while traveling. I love the patina and verdigris! It is heavy cast bronze/brass. The figure of Christ is firmly attached with the 2 little rounds you might see on the back.I found it in Belgium, very dark with age. As I cleaned the back to try to read the impressed markings, the verdigris began blooming, so I continued to clean! I leave it to you, if you want to make it shiny and bright...

Incredible handwork, most likely by several ladies of the Altar Guild, covers this detailed piece! The words in German heavily padded gothic lettering, proclaims "Innocent Lamb of God, Have Mercy on us". As I studied it, I found it to include so much symbolism. My interpretation... The reclining wounded Lamb on the Altar, symbolizes Christ in His sacrificial role and personifies innocence, gentleness and humility. The Sword of the Spirit, and the blood signify the sacrifice...

There is a break at the bottom,that isn't even noticed when hung...
