The uncut decks are then allowed to cure for seven days before finishing. Each deck is made with skateboard specific glue made by Franklin.
Concave: Mellow standard (8.0 only)
Width: 8 inches standard
Length: 31.5 inches
The artwork on the board undersides are custom illustrations made exclusively for Motherboards. They are designed specifically for imprinting on our board products. You will not find these illustrations anywhere else, they are truly unique copyrighted designs.* Each design also includes a somewhat hidden image of the front of the Miraculous Medal and the back of the Benedict medal. We think of these as our "secret deck weapons".
DIGITAL PRINTED TRANSFER:
The highest level of detail is achieved using the DPT process. Specialized coatings are used to bind the ink DIRECTLY to the skateboard deck. Our deck designs are bright, vibrant and iconic. It's a big uplift from most of the deck art out there.
Standard deck ships in 2 – 3 business days.
ICONOGRAPHY - CRUCIFIX DECK
According to the Gospels, the persecution, trial, torture (collectively called the Passion), and Crucifixion of Jesus occurred when Jewish leaders became concerned that Jesus' growing popularity among the people was threatening their position and power. Out of fear that their followers might turn on them, these leaders arranged for the Roman government to put Jesus on trial—and the resulting sentence was death. The method of execution, being hung on an instrument made of two pieces of wood, was used by the Romans in that era as a painful and humiliating means of publicly putting to death criminals, slaves and foreigners. Jesus accepted his trial, torture and execution, because he believed all these events were the will of God.
According to the "Catechism of the Catholic Church," the Crucifixion represents the ultimate sacrifice and a gift from God to humankind. Because humans had repeatedly sinned and broken covenants (agreements between God and the Jewish people), the only proper atonement was the sacrifice of God's own son, poetically described as "the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world." Through agreeing to be put on trial and then accepting the penalty of death, "Jesus atoned for our faults and made satisfaction for our sins." This means that because of Jesus' selfless action, it was possible for God to erase the sins of humans. (John P Moore: The Catholic Meaning of Jesus Dying on the Cross)
