El Señor de la Misericordia

Wood, gesso, paint; closed eyes, wig. Approximately 4 feet tall (122 cm.).
Church of San Juan Teitipac, Oaxaca, Mexico

On this crucifix, Jesus has a cruciform halo and wears a red loincloth with scutum. The rib cage shows through the skin, but in something of a stylized half-circle. The legs almost touch the floor of the case. The body curves like a bow.
