Description, including signature and date
This gold cross is decorated with every tool and symbol of the passion imaginable. The entire contents of the bottle are painted gold. The carving is delicate, especially the heart and nails in the center of the cross (see closeup at right). A rooster sits on top of the cross, and the base features a skull and crossed-bones on top of three dice.
