Description, including signature and date
The crucifixion bottle by "The Caveman" of Missouri is almost the same as the others except for the top. The figure of Jesus is wonderfully carved, and tiny lettering over His head says "Jesus King of the Jews." On the back are the words "Eloi Eloi Lama Sabachthani" and a ladder with Hope, Faith, and Charity on the rungs. There are three other bottles by The Caveman on this website. In one, he put Branson, Missouri, as his location. This one is dated Dec 25, 1934.
