The Centerpiece in the Fuentiduena Chapel

At the "Cloisters" site of the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Figure of Jesus on the Cross at The Cloisters,

Originally from Castile-León, from the convent
of Santa Clara at Astudillo, near Palencia; C. 1150-1200 (2 of 3)


Brief Description:

This lifesize Jesus fixed onto a cross originally hung above the altar of
a church. Despite the wounds in his hands, feet, and side, the symmetry of
Jesus’ face and body suggests calm and offers little evidence of his suffering
and death. Instead, his open eyes, gold crown, and jeweled loincloth—
once sky-blue in color, with gold stripes and a red lining—imply that he
is triumphing over death. This image of Jesus alive on the cross, which
appeared by the fifth century, was the first way medieval artists depicted
the Crucifixion.

Also:

    Fotografisch eine einwandfreie Aufnahme, sie ist Dir
    wunderbar gelungen. Die Farbe ist sehr altertümlich
    und passt excellent zu den dort gemalten Bildern an
    der Kirchenwand sowie zur Figur des Christus am Kreuz.
    Tschüssing gemblue,
    peter
