We call a Painted Cross (Croce dipinta) a representation of Christ depicted on a cut-out support and put in the format of the Latin cross. More economical to create than a sculpture, these different types of crosses, when they were large, were most often suspended above the main altar, at the edge of the transept crossing where the faithful stood, and from the apse where the clergy sat. The Byzantine era favored a type of representation known as Christus triumphans (Christ triumphant): Christ, who appears detached from all suffering, living and triumphing over death, is represented: eyes wide open, gaze turned towards the spectator with his body straightened (he seems more to be standing in front of the cross than to be attached to it)
