Large cross in Catalpa wood

I've been avoiding religious carvings but was requested to carve a large wooden cross done in any style I would find suitable. I came up with this piece, it is 17.5 inches tall and 11.5 inches wide. It is fully hand carved in Catalpa wood but I cut out the base shape with a scroll saw. Funnily once the cross was finished the customer decided not to get it :)
I am going to post it on Etsy because somebody else will surely appreciate the work:

The cross is finished with Danish oil, it shows a very beautiful grain:
