Clay Model: Crucifixion

This clay model is at 1/2 scale 36” tall. I will be carving this in wood. The life size statue will be 6 foot with a 12’ cross. I have worked out all the details in clay to help me see it in 3D, then I will transfer this to a full scale drawing for the wood glue-up. So far it’s been a great experience learning human anatomy and learning so much about our Lord Jesus Christ, the little details and meaning behind each scar and location of the  nails, ect.
