Sculptural 18th century Italian figure of Christ on agate coral adorned with coordinating blue shells and natural-forming copper. The figure of Christ was originally part of a crucifix from a church in Tuscany.
The piece is mounted on the fossil agate coral. Fossil agate coral is Florida's state stone and is known for its unique formation that can take place over 20 million years. It's a natural gemstone that is created when prehistoric coral is gradually replaced with agate. The natural-forming copper resemble the arms on the figure of Christ.
Together the elements create a figurative, contemporary work of historic significance.
