Need help finding a table crucifix
#1
I've been searching all over tonight but cannot seem to find a standing crucifix for my home altar that meets my standards. I'm looking for one that's somber, with a corpus... you know, something that I can really meditate the sorrowful mysteries with. The bloodier the better too lol. Preferably under $50.

This one is close to what I want: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LWZLY6C/ref...B003AKJ6K2
"The Heart of Jesus is closer to you when you suffer, than when you are full of joy." - St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

'Therefore do I weep, and my eyes run down with water: because the comforter, the relief of my soul, is far from me: my children are desolate because the enemy hath prevailed.' - Lamentations 1:16

What's wrong with the one you linked to?  It looks very nice.
"There are not over a hundred people in the United States who hate the Catholic Church. There are millions, however, who hate what they wrongly believe to be the Catholic Church -- which is, of course, quite a different thing." -Ven. Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

"Let me repeat this sentence. It is impossible in human language to exaggerate the importance of being in a chapel or church before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. That sentence is the talisman of the highest sanctity." -Fr. John Hardon, S.J.

Not a whole lot, I do like it. I just wanted to see if anyone's come across anything better

Augustinian,
the one you linked to is better than my bronze one I picked up through Amazon. If I may but in, you should pick that one up.
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the most precious blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said Throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory. Amen.

@Augustinian, I think that's very pretty. ETA: both the first one you linked and the bronze.
