Unusual crucifix made in the Holy Land in wood and mother of pearl.
Beautiful base with a carved nativity scene.
Souvenir from Jerusalem as marked at the back. 
First half of the 20th century.

Mother of pearl disks  marking the stations of the cross (number 8 is missing). Some writing partially erased. 

The cross can be removed from its base. Nothing is completely straight.

Heavy signs of age especially on the cross. The varnish and tint are gone in places.
There are some imperfections to the mother of pearl disks too.
Two wooden decorations have been broken behind the halo at the centre of the cross.
Large crack at the back but it still holds very firmly.

Total size 36.3 x 15 cm / 14.29 x 5.9"
