somber and gothic - nymphenburg's crucifix sculpture is a beautiful, dark, and awe-inspiring porcelain rendering of the crucifixtion of jesus christ.
this work of porcelain art has been in production since the late 1700's, and it is still made with the same hand-crafted painstaking attention to detail that it was when it first went into production.
the sculpture consists of: 1 porcelain body, 1 porcelain skull, 2 porcelain crossbones, 1 porcelain 'inri' sign, and 1 wooden cross/display stand.
nymphenburg is one of the oldest and most revered art and design manufacturers in the world. founded in 1747 by elector max the III of bavaria and located since 1761 on the northern lane at the nymphenburg palace, they have now had over 250 years of uninterrupted porcelain production. they represent the highest standard in porcelain, hand-crafting every item and even producing their ‘white gold’ themselves in the nymphenburg mill.
version 1 designed by Franz Anton Bustelli, 1755
