LoJ058 The Crucified Christ


SKU: LoJ058 Categories: ,


Crucifixion was a long, bloody, brutal affair and this figure of Jesus displays some of the many injuries he must have suffered after his scourging and long painful procession through the city from the Roman jail carrying the cross beam up to the hill of Calvary on the outskirts of Jerusalem.
There, he would have been nailed to the cross by the Roman soldiers and have the additional ropes attached before being hoisted onto the vertical position… The extreme pain and loss of blood would have been excruciating!
Above Jesus head a crude sign was attached to the main wooden beam that read ‘This is Jesus of Nazareth the King of the Jews’.
