A very small and wonderfully detailed cross with religious symbols. All in natural wood, the scene includes a cross with a plaque where the INRI would be placed. A ladder with 8 rungs leans against the cross. There is a spear, sponge on a long rod, chalice, pliers, flail, roster, crown of thorns, skull and cross bones, and wooden nails making up the carved pieces included in this bottle. All carvings are very detailed and well done. The bottle is sealed with a tamper proof stopper with crosspiece.
