Sculptural 18th century Italian figure of Christ in a celestial geode heart. The figure of Christ was originally part of a crucifix from a church in Tuscany.
The celestial geode heart is carved and shaped into a heart. Celestial geodes are best recognized with their sky blue colored crystal often found in clusters. The name is derived from the Latin word “caelestis” which means celestial” or “heavenly.” They usually come from Madagascar and Sicily, Italy.
Together the figure of Christ and celestial heart create a figurative, contemporary work of historic significance.
