A LARGE LATE 15TH / EARLY 16TH CENTURY ITALIAN CARVED WOOD AND POLYCHROME DECORATED FIGURE OF CHRIST CRUCIFIED
the figure of Cristo Morto with head turned to dexter, his feet crossed, his body naturalistically carved, wearing a white, rope tied perizonium, with a later iron ring attached to the back to hang, retaining much of the original polychrome paintwork,
128cm high x 96cm wide
This well preserved Corpus Christi would have originally hung above an altar. The pose, idealised features and the modelling of the physique indicate an Italian origin.
