About

Romanesque statue of Medieval Christ on the cross or Crucifix, sculpture with half-bent legs, long symmetric perizonium, flat chest, incisions in V at the level of the fold of elbows, ribs represented by rows of curved lines. The hair, divided in its center, and beard are finely chiselled. Hairs are separated by a median parting and the pupils are deeply incised into the eyes. The morphology of this Crucifix sculpture of the Middle Ages, around 1150, is reminiscent of the Mosan art from Liege.
