This striking depiction of the crucified Jesus was made in Flanders. The piece is exquisitely detailed. His hair is set in undulating curs, a beard covers his chin, and his eyes are gracefully closed. the piece is extraordinarily detailed, with the meticulous carving extending even to the twisted crown of thorns around his head and the nails in his hands and feet.
