Christ carrying the Cross, surrounded by two soldiers, praying disciples and Mary in the background while Simon of Cyrene helps Christ carrying the Cross.

This sculpture may be attributed to the workshop of Jan Borman I. Jan Borman belonged to a family of sculptors. His father was also a sculptor and the two seem to have worked together on at least one occasion. Jan Borman is mentioned for the first time in 1479, when he joined the guild of sculptors in Brussels. In 1484-86, he received a commission to supply statues for one of the side-altars in Antwerp Cathedral. In 1491, in connection with a commission to restore and create new sculptures for Sint-Jacobskerk (Church of St. James) in Leuven, Borman is reported to have entered the joiner's guild of Leuven.
