This listing is for an antique Crucifix Cross Pendant.
This is perhaps a Pectoral or a nuns crucifix -see images.
This item is made from Metal (appears to be Aluminium) with some other base metals in some areas.
and the cross also has inlaid Ebony Wood on it -please see images.
This item I would date from c1895-c1940 or so.
Interestingly, in the late 1800's, Aluminium was extremely difficult (and costly) to extract from its various ores, -making Aluminium quite valueable (as valuable as Silver, and even Gold at one time).
this item was recently purchased from an estate.
On this crucifix there is a skull and crossbones design.
This design can be interpreted a couple of ways.
- it has been said to represent the place where Jesus was crucified (GOLGOTHA)-(which is Calvary) which translates in the bible to 'The place of the skull'.
And based on some thoughts, Jesus was crucified over Adam's Gravesite (so the skull would represent Adam).
-Another thought is that the skull and crossbones represents death, and showing them beneath the feet of Jesus represents Jesus' resurection and triumph over death.
This is a USED/PRE-OWNED Item -See Below for Condition Report.
