The each face of the wood carving is attached to a support covered with hummingbird feathers. The iridescent blue and green feathers forming the background are oriented with the tip or distal end to the bottom of the design and the calamus to the top. Each face of the micro-carvings, attached to the feather-covered ground, are carved from a single thin wood sheet with the exception of the two winged putti faces in the Crucifixion. The carvings are highlighted with red for blood, black for eyes, and blue-green glittering paint for Christ's crown of thorns and palm frond.
