One Leg to Stand On

As you may have gathered by now, I have a thing about photographing crucifixion scenes. I'm not sure what drives me to do this... it is not out of disrespect for anyone ; at least the Catholic or other Christian institutions accept criticism... some other religions might want to have me crucified were I to say anything even vaguely critical or depict images of their sacred figures, so I will refrain from doing so. No, it is more out of interest in the way old symbols, and this one is getting pretty old now, decay or deteriorate over time. In a small Brittany village I found one that has lost a leg and suffered hip and abdominal injuries ... the missing leg was nowhere to be seen...
