BOHOL CRUCIFIX


Bohol icon tend to be very primitive i.e. non-realistic in pose and presentation. The lines of the sculpture are linen and the details of the body or figures tend to be ¬distorted. This is a very good example of a Bohol icon. The body of the crucified Christ is distorted to a certain degree and the body parts are not proportional. The waist is bigger than most of the torso and the arms are very linear. This is a very simplistic representation of the Crucified Christ. Mid 19th century.
