This was the hand painted crucifix in the little chapel I spent the night in, high on the cliffs on the south coast of Crete. I found so many beautiful, sacred original works of art in similar shape as this. The white on Jesus’ face is bird shit.

I appreciate this very much, LisaBeth. All goodness to you.
such a worn, ancient feeling in this. at the same time somewhat humorous, as i read about the bird shit i started laughing.
I had a different reaction to this …one of dismay that a sacred icon had been allowed to sit in such a state. And the wondering if there was anyone around with the expertise to clean it without destroying. An unsettling image but well presented Blake.Peace,sass
