Description

Christ on the cross of large size and high quality. Christ is represented here as “Christus patiens”, or resigned Christ.  Face is emaciated, seized by death in a calm pose, eyes closed with the death mask, the body drooping. The wounds, however, are not present. Great realism of muscles and ribs, as well as hair and perizonium. Note the folded position of the little fingers. Mounted on a green velvet cross. France, 1st quarter of the 19th c., although various opinions see it earlier. diagonal hand-feet: 58
