Default I found Jesus and 10 Commandments

So I was at a 1920's era home that has been torn down and I found Jesus about 8 inches down. I accidentally damaged it a bit with the shovel as it was under some brick rubble next to the foundation of the house. He's wearing a cross pattern head band with some cut stones embedded in it -- some of the stones are missing. I believe it may have been mounted on some type of plaque at one time. Not sure what type of metal it is but it shows a VDI reading of 80 (out of the ground) on the T2.

I also found an aluminum coin with the 10 commandments on one side and a warning about your salvation on the other side.

No coins found except some copper pennies from 1959 - 1982. The foundation had been buried under about 8" of fill dirt so any period coins or smaller artifacts were to deep to get at in this trashy ground unfortunately.
