Product Description
Gorgeous Corpus and Cross by Cimabue is carved in linden wood, with a full round corpus and painted in traditional colors. The cross is artistically hand painted with gold and silver decorations.

This is one of Cimabue's early works. He painted it around 1265. Cimabue, whose real name was Cenni di Pepo, was Giotto's master. Here he brilliantly breaks away from the Byzantine style, not only in technique, but also in his more ���humane��� vision of the tragedy of Calvary. Instead of a triumphant Christ, he paints a suffering Christ who carries the weight of the sin of man. The flood in 1966 in Florence partly destroyed the crucifix. Tho original cross measures approx. 13' wide by 15' long.
A true masterpiece!
