    Hi! Some like big butts, I like big spikes :) It's just a fetish within a fetish of mine. It's a personal preference, but when I look at most crux-art, I cannot help but think: "How are those tiny spikes going to carry the weight of an entire person?" I know I'm exaggerating on the other side of the spectrum, call it crux-expressionism ;)
    Cheers,

    Fair enough. Thanks for clearing that up. If it's intentional and part of your vision, we can stop wondering about it.

    I like those mega nails. We were discussing crux nails on another thread last week, and agreed they'd need to be pretty substantial, with good broad heads. And I mentioned handling some Roman builders' nails from an archaeological site, which were big and much heavier than modern alloy ones, they looked much like yours Marius, and were almost as big - I imagined if they were driven through my wrists and feet, I'd certainly be on that cross till I rotted.

    Thanks a lot for your reply! Glad you like my "meta-fetish"! I saw these mega nails for the first time in a BBC documentary on the building of Roman encampments in England. I was sold straight away :) As the host was talking away how they would certainly provide for a solidly assembled palisade, I was thinking of solidly nailed "crucisalae"... Though I dare believe that if spikes this massive were actually used for crucifixion, the "show" would be over pretty quickly... As it would completely destroy the joints, the condemned wouldn't be able to pull or push up for air I'm afraid... Good thing it's fiction I'm doing, so I can ignore the parts of physics and biology I don't like ;)
    Cheers,
    Marius

    My memory is useless. I'm sure you did an excellent set of pics years ago for which GoldenRuler provided the words and a computer voice for an M&J production of The Garden Party. We had a lot of fun making that but sadly it didn't win any Oscars. Not even a measly Palm D'Or.

    Wow! Thanks for bringing that up! The 3D rendered stuff in there is indeed mine. But you transformed it beautifully!!! :)
    Shame you missed an award with this one, that effort certainly deserves one!
