A True Sacrafice by Boomboom34 A True Sacrafice by Boomboom34
I have always seen Jesus on the cross but never a woman... So I experimented and I think it came out fairly nice... I love the detail that I put into it over all and the cross itself. It came out a lil crooked but that's ok....

If you're religous or oppose to this please send a note instead.

The idea is interesting... and I have no doubt women were hung on crosses as it was the torture death of choice for the Romans at that time. the reason you only see Jesus on a cross is because he was put there for reasons other than just for death... but yeah, im sure that was a common sight in the Roman Empire between 3 BC and AD 31 (Jesus Time roughly). it was a punishment for theives, robbers and murderers and the like.
