Design for a crucifix decorated with C-volutes and rocaille ornaments. The base is forged completely out of C-volutes and rocailles, whereas the cross itself is made from an undecorated type of metal. C-volutes have been added between the arms of the cross however, and a rocaille ornament is used as a crowning ornament for the three arms of the cross.
