This piece is part of a curated European ceramic crucifix collection. From modernism to brutalism, they range from being as futurist as a modernist church to as raw as a brutalist building. Each artist offered a different take on the representation of faith through volumes and colors.

The collection offers an excellent selection for composing a custom wall of modernist crucifixes.
