Gilded bronze cross. Catholic Monarchs. Spain. Circa 1500.
Cast bronze, decorated with engraved and embossed details. The structure is topped with a crest of leaves, a constant element of the Gothic period. With regard to the typology of the cross, it follows the occidental Mediterranean style, with arms ended with fleurs de lys, a separate free-standing quadrant, topped with rosettes (acorns in this case), which form a cross. This model also has a Christ which has three rather than four nails. Flawed. 56,5 x 42,5 cm.
