“Seguitemi, vi farò pescatori di uomini”

Gesù di Nazareth

Christ Crucified

Wooden sculpture

Art of Friuli, first half of the 15th century

h: cm 150

The body of Christ is marked by a naturalistic intensity and suffering. Crowned with thorns, his head reclines to the right with his long locks of hair falling down over his shoulders. His eyelids give the sculpture a particular sense of serenity. The torso, which is simply yet effectively sculpted, presents the open wound. The loincloth is marked by large, loose folds.

The arms are mutilated.
