A very folksy diorama of the Crucifixion. The scene shows Jesus hanging from the wooden cross. The figure of Jesus is carved in wood and is nearly 4" high. The wounds of Jesus are painted in blood red and his loin cloth is actual cloth.. There are actual nails driven through the hands and feet. The cross has INRI on a wooden plaque at the top of the cross. The bottle has many carved items including: Ladder, spear, sponge, lantern, Axe, dice, chalice and host, mallet, saw, broom head, 3 multi-colored nooses made in what appears to be nylon strands, and several other carved forms. 2 nooses are at the base and one comes from the top of the cross.
