I was hunting around an old Louisiana plantation last Sunday and found this lead piece. I noticed a photo of a dug crucifix in a relic magazine and I thought..you know, I possibly found the top piece of a crucifix. It is broken at the junction of the cross beam. It's made of lead, maybe carved?? The hole at the top was definitely intended for suspension. Any help or comments appreciated.

It really has an indentation in it's middle denoting something was attached that wouldn't create a crucifix shape.
