About the object

Numerous relics are hidden inside the cross, partly wrapped in small packages in cloth and labelled with little notes. Originally they were obscured by paintings on the crossbars. The Virgin Mary in a golden yellow robe is still visible on the upright bar of the cross. On the reverse, the symbols of the apostles have been engraved on the ends of the crossbar with the Lamb of God in the middle.
