Our cross is adapted from an original twelfth-century ivory altar cross in the collection of The Cloisters Museum and Gardens, a branch of the Metropolitan Museum devoted to Medieval art. To capture the rich detail and graceful bearing of the original sculpture, which features some 92 figures and 98 inscriptions, this reproduction was created using an advanced three- dimensional imaging process in combination with the same traditional carving techniques used to sculpt the original ivory.
Cast resin. Hand patinated. 26 1/2''H x 13 1/2''W x 4''D including base.
