Crucifix "Altenstadt" - Romanesque style - Reproduction of the famous Crucifix of Altenstadt (Bavaria) - Germany. Sculpted in the 13th century. The name "The Big God of Altenstadt (translation from German)" takes origin from the monumental size of the Christ’s body of 3.20 metres - 126 inch. The crown of gold instead of the crown of thorns represents the royal and sacerdotal dignity. In this representation we can note the Italian influences of Arezzo (Tuscany).
The first indicated size is referring to the size of Christ’s body from head to toe;
the second size, labeled with †, is the size of the cross.
Christ’s body carved in MAPLEWOOD
The cross is made of ASHWOOD
