The Gospels all testify that Jesus of Nazareth was crucified on Golgotha, a Hebrew word meaning "the Place of the Skull"—or Calvaria, in Latin. It was on this hill of Calvary, just outside Jerusalem, that Jesus took upon Himself the sins of the world, as He was scourged, crowed with thorns, crucified, and pierced through the heart for our salvation. The sinless Son of God gave up His life out of love for us, that each of us might be saved from death and find forgiveness and a new life in Him. Inspired by this ultimate act of love, we have created the Calvary Crucifix Collection. Each was exclusively designed and exquisitely sculpted for Milagros. Every crucifix comes packed in a signature Milagros gift box and is ready for gift giving.
It looks like metal and therefore like an artifact. Makes me think of all the generations that have worshiped like I do. Pros: Beautiful old style
Looks great, feels cheap

I loved the look of this crucifix on the website, so much so that I had to buy it! I loved the looked of the skulls and the old world Spanish flavor it appeared to have. Although it still looks nice once I saw it in person, I was disappointed that it was so lightweight (kind of felt like a cheap Halloween decoration). However, I know once I am able to hang it up on the wall somewhere in my home that its going to look a lot better.
My mother has a different crucifix in every room of her home, and she did not like this one at all. I suppose it depends on what taste you have in religious imagery. Best Uses: Wall crucifix; Cons: Not as authentic looking, Too light-weight; Pros: Nice size for hanging, Old Catholic feel, Uncommon design
Happy with Purchased Item

This is a beautiful crucifix. I got it for my husband and I for Christmas and when he opened it up he raved about how beautiful it was and the excellent quality of the piece.
