Wood carvings from Mexico.

Wood carvings from Mexico.

I found these two wooden carvings in Mexico. The gallery owner told me the heads were each originally attached to a cross, but he detached them. I think they are great stand-alone works of art. Actually I feel bad that the artist put so much work into these for such a tiny amount of money–I think I got the two of them for $50.

    Beautiful. I can almost feel the weight of the world on the Savior. Does the tactile experience from holding them give any additional insight to them?
