After embellishing countless human skulls with Swarovski crystals, Quinn Gregory has completed his biggest work to date: a life-sized crucifix. The sculptor spent nearly five months building the Jesus piece and another ten covering it will nearly a quarter-million Swarovski crystals. Gregory explains the process for his “Infinite Hope” sculpture: “Through research, I learned that Jesus was 5’3″ tall (which made him actually a tall Jewish man at that time). I used cooper tubing to make his 5’3” skeleton and then built from there.” The radiant display is currently view at Open Concept Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan where it’s contending for $500k from the city’s Art Prize competition.
