About the object

The decorative panels and the figure of Christ are nailed to the wooden body of the cross. The crossbars are adorned with leaf tendrils, the trefoil ends of the bars display medallions with the apostles (front) and their symbols (rear). The medallions themselves are related to works from Freiburg goldsmith's workshop associated with a master by the name of Johannes. A small reliquary has been inserted into the rear of the crucifix at a later date.
