Wooden cross
Guanajuato, Mexico
Wood, paint
22 x 13 inches, (56 cm x 33 cm)
18th century

A wonderful old wooden cross with a painted crucified Christ figure, an angel, possibly Mary Magdelene, God and the Holy Spirit, and various items associated with the passion of Christ. The base is a replacement, and there are a few native repairs.

It could be from Queretaro, Mexico, though I was told it was from Guanajuato.
