Description, including signature and date

This small bottle contains a cross and several tools and symbols of the Passion. Almost as an afterthought, a small piece of paper with a pencil drawing of Christ's head is attached to the shaft of the cross (see right). A beautiful crown of thorns, made from real thorns, is looped over the top of the cross.

The wooden stopper is carved with a maltese cross on an orb from a dark or stained wood.
