The original cross, approximately 6 feet tall by 4 feet wide, is a painting on linen glued to walnut. It features images of Christ's passion, death, resurrection and ascension into glory. Its thematic colors are red and black. Red, the color of Christ's blood which he shed for us, symbolizes God's love. Black is the color of death. An unknown artist produced it sometime prior to 1205, the year in which Francis knelt before it in the San Damiano Chapel.
