Bottle 779 - Would You Still Believe?
Date Added: 15 June 2010

This Crucifixion bottle is a so called variation on a theme. Here, Christ is black unlike the run of the mill Christs which are white. My neighbor described him as "African American". I don't know how he determined the nation of origin by looking at him, but he is more perceptive than I am. There is a INRI sign above Christ's head which stands for Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews. There is a women follower praying at the base of the cross. The stopper is made of Curly Cherry and has a Walnut cross at the top. Inlaid with Basswood is the title of the whimsey: Would You Still Believe? On the back of the stopper, also inlaid in Basswood is the maker's information. Steve Moseley, St. Louis 2009
