Processional cross Byzantine style chiseled copper Madonna crucifixion 55x45.Processional cross depicting the crucifixion of Christ and on the back the Madonna with the Child on the throne. At the ends of the arms of the cross there are two Archangels and the Holy Spirit on one side, Mary Mother of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, the disciple John and the Mandylion on the other side.The cross has a multilayer marine wood structure with hand-chiseled copper coating on the front and back. The copper plates are all treated with a gold and silver galvanic bath, red and blue silver oxidation, plus final antioxidant zapping.The cross is equipped with a gilded brass support for a wooden shaft and finished with trimmings and hard stone pearls.Also available bronze base with gold and silver gilding and wooden sticks of different heights for different types of display.The work measures 54x43 cm and was made with great skill by Pietro Vittorio Milani, aka ''Victor'', a Piedmontese artist.The artist was born in Verbania in April 1950. After living for twenty years in the Veneto region, he moved to Lombardy, in Abbiategrasso, where he began to cultivate his passion for painting on canvas, with oil colors and watercolors. A self-taught impressionist, he will later discover his predilection for embossed copper, the material that is most congenial to him. An innate passion for the medieval era will lead him to reproduce battles, jousting, seals, heraldic shields, scenes and objects inspired by books, frescoes and historical magazines and to participate in fairs, re-enactments and exhibitions throughout Italy. A multifaceted artist, in addition to depictions of historical periods, his works also portray various examples of contemporaneity. Through very different themes and subjects, in copper and plaster, the transition from a two-dimensionality of serigraphs, paintings and frescoes to a lively and pulsating three-dimensionality is highlighted. In 2018, thanks to an encounter with a restorer, master of electroplating, gold and silver, he approaches sacred art. He creates works depicting various religious subjects, on crosses, reliquaries, tabernacles and portraits. One of the most valuable creations, “The baptismal font in Byzantine style”, a very demanding, unique and unrepeatable work. Some of the works are located in various sacred places, including: the Basilica Sanctuary of the Madonna della Guardia in Tortona, the Church of Don Orione in Sanremo, the Church of San Michele Arcangelo in Chioggia.
