Description, including signature and date
The cross in this bottle is made of simple strips of wood, not whittled or painted. The base is two crossed pieces of the same wood. The tools include a hammer, two nails, a small ladder and crossed spears which are decorated in red foil. A square piece of wood, also decorated in red, stand in front of the cross on a post. The figure of Jesus on the cross was cut from a color picture on glossy paper.
