This piece is part of a large European ceramic crucifix collection, all made in Belgium between the 1950 and late 1970s. From modernism to brutalism, they range from being as Futurist as a Modernist church to as raw as a Brutalist building. Each artist offered their representation of the faith through volumes and colors.
