Scope and content

Item consists of one large wooden crucifix. The figure of Jesus is intricately carved. According to an email from Sue Mosteller and Joe Child, in which Joe tells what he remembers of the figure: "The story I remember is that there was an old priest at Freiburg University who was an old friend of Henry's. Either before or after he died, he gave Henry the cross, and it came from a church in WWII, and the cross was all he recovered from the bombed out building. Henry brought it back and showed it to me and asked if I would mount it on a cross. I made a cross, and then gave it a high gloss finish. This accentuated the figure, which was a carved figure of Christ, and there was no finish on it, so it contrasted well with the finish on the cross. Henry liked it, and was around the old chapel for a long time. That is about all I can remember."
