Object description :

"Altar Cross, End Seventeenth Century."
This Christ in carved boxwood has his arms stretched up in a position called "Jansenist", the head resting on his right shoulder is slightly raised, the hair and the beard are finely carved. The perzonium, with tight folds, is raised on the front and knotted in the back. The legs are slightly bent and the uncrossed feet are nailed side by side. From the emaciated face emanates a feeling of suffering even if the body in its apparent abandonment would rather express the acceptance of the sacrifice. The cross and the turned wooden base rest on three small feet and are made of ash. At the ends of the crucifix and at the base and center are set bouquets of flowers in repoussé and chiselled silver, they are from the late seventeenth century or early eighteenth century and could be reported later although the same period and constituting a coherent whole. The ash burl cross makes us think of an origin that could be Bressan. Small accidents at the tips of the fingers. Christ on the cross of the late seventeenth century. Overall dimensions: height 69 cm, width 42 cm, height of the arm raised Christ 32 cm.
