Crucifixion

Description

"As with the other statues of religious themes, Wickham’s over life-size Crucifixion was placed on the cabin side of the road. Neighbors remember it being added to the site late in Wickham’s life, after the construction of most of the historical and political figures. The work was documented as being located just beyond the concrete archway marking the service road that led back to the sundial and other religious figures. Originally nine feet tall, the figure of the suffering Christ is graphically shown, nailed to his cross, with a label of INRI above his bent head." - quoted text is from the 2001 Customs House Museum Online Wickham Exhibit.

The crucifixion was the last statue built by E.T. Wickham.
