Product information "Crucifix - Baroque body on the Baroque cross - from the Black Forest"

Jesus on the cross, hand-made crucifix from genuine wood with finely crafted details. Christianity worships Jesus for his sacrifice on the cross which he made for the sake of humanity. The suffering of Jesus and his death on the cross already anticipate the wonder of the resurrection. The body of Jesus thus becomes the symbol of the all-conquering power and love of God. The portrayal of Jesus on the cross - the crucifix - was made in an individual way for each different era. The Baroque crucifix is particularly characterised by the spirited facial and bodily expressions of the Redeemer and the curved loin cloth which gives the impression of movement. The face of the Messiah which is inclined downwards reveals the pain he has to suffer. The wooden cross to which the body is attached has the form of a so-called Lazarus or cloverleaf crucifix which was commonly used in the Baroque period. This is a cross where the beams end with a three-leaved segment - a symbol of the Holy Trinity. The Lazarus cross is painted dark red with the ends of the beams emerald green. The letters I.N.R.I which proclaim the offence Jesus has committed from the point of view of the judge Pontius Pilate are struck on a golden plate on the upper end of the crucifix. The four letters form the abbreviation for "Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaerum", meaning "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews".

Supplier description "Lang woodcraft"

Wood carvings produced by the hands of a master craftsman

Master carver Andreas Lang is the second generation of his family to perform the traditional craftsmanship of wood carving in Elzach on the edge of the Southern Black Forest Nature Park. He trained as a wood carver in Freiburg im Breisgau. He took over the wood carving business from his father and raised the workshop's outstanding reputation throughout the region to an even higher level.

Like the Black Forest, Elzach is a predominantly Roman Catholic area. This is why his wood carving workshop primarily creates religious objects from a sense of inner conviction. He gains inspiration for new motifs by studying old patterns in books. Churches and abbeys repeatedly call on his services for restoration work. They value his expert advice and skills as a wood carver very highly.

In addition to devotional objects, Andreas Lang has also developed an outstanding reputation for the carving of Carnival masks. He has been the master carver for Carnival Committees in the Black Forest and the whole of southern Germany for many years. Anyone who is aware of the value of the traditional Carnival cultural artefact will also be aware of the magnitude of this honour.

As a master carver Andreas Lang is convinced that only the finest and most thorough craftsmanship can lead to outstanding quality. His name guarantees this.

All products are hand-crafted. All original from the Black Forest.
