This striking Flemish depiction of the crucified Jesus is exquisitely detailed. His hair is set in undulating curls, a beard covers his chin, and his eyes are gracefully closed. The meticulous carving extends even to the twisted crown of thorns and the nails in his hands and feet. This late Renaissance masterpiece contains all of its period elements.
