I always thought the detailed parts of the top part of the Tito were built in for lack of a better term, like the branches that I think I see on it were carved in the wax. Parts of the crown on that Jesus I mentioned look like pieces of metal that are possibly soldered on & if they're not they still look like they could be detached. This is from the guy that I bought The Jesus from that I posted on the other page:That's how the Tito "crown" is. It sticks up just like that.
The face is more in proportion to the Jacob. if&co has that long horse face. I don't care if the crown is bigger either on this one cause that's just more diamonds and gold.
Doesn't float over the head like a halo as Icebox has described the Kanye styled Jesus but it still looks like a separate entity to me. The space behind it (Jesus actual head) is prolly actually what is lacking in detail compared to the rest of the piece and is weak, not the crown so I take back what I had said earlier. I will always like the IF&CO Jesus, it reminds me of the early years of this decade. I prolly would have bought it from the tax auction but they wanted you to sign your life away too much without even explaining clearly how the entire bidding + payment + shipping even worked.
