Per Mr. John McAuliffe:
This crucifixion plaque was sculptured by my Dad, Florence McAuliffe for his father's gravestone...Timothy J. McAuliffe (also a sculptor).
After 60 years it had gathered a deep stained green patina.....
I spent hours removing it and applying a bronze laquer stain and a sealant spray over that.
