1979.3983 Bullet Crucifix, Trench Art, WWI

Bullet Crucifix

This crucifix is made from two French 8mm lebel cartridge cases with three German projectiles forming the cross at the top and a brass Christ figure mounted in the centre. The design and inclusion of the mass-produced Christ figure suggest that this is an example of a commercially produced piece of trench art. (1979.3983)
