The cross stands between two large palm leaves. There are a few
tools, some on a separate bar in front of the foot of the cross.
All of the carved contents are painted gold. The figure of Christ
has been cut from a holy card. Above his head is a hand-lettered
banner with INRI.
The most unusual feature of this bottle is the piece of paper
or card beneath the feet of Christ. It says in Spanish "Jesús
Crucificado" (Christ crucified). I have some body of evidence
supporting an eastern European origin for this folk art form;
this is the only bottle I have that might suggest an Hispanic
maker. Or it could have been made in Texas or southern California.
