Carved wooden crucified Christ with slight stucco and polychrome residue. Romanesque. 13th century. Possibly from the Erill-la-Vall workshop.
Very interesting sculpture due to its magnificent state of preservation. A depiction of the suffering of Christ. The head is inclined towards his chest to show his abandonment to suffering. His face appears tense and transmits pain. Covered by a short loin cloth, knotted at one side. Incrusted on the back is a very small piece of what is probably tin, with an anagram engraved on it. Height: 37 cm.
