Lladro Religious Figurines, Christus. Matte Porcelain. 14.75" x 8.5"
It is a depiction of the Christ of the Mormon Church, whose full name is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Mormons believe that God is made of flesh, just like men and for this reason the depictions of Christ are very realistic. On the other hand, the fact that it is made in satin matt porcelain, provides it with the exquisite whiteness the Mormons confer to God. As The Book of Mormon describes, God is seen totally white in His apparitions, both clothes and flesh, hands and arms outstretched, bare feet, head, neck and chest.
