Gilt copper, decorated with enamelling technique Champlevé

The sculpture is cast with hollow back, enamelled, and gilt. Christ is crucified with three nails, his hands outstretched and his head raised. The body is rendered in fine quality and the perizonium which falls to Christ's knees is picked out in vertical bands of blue enamel.

Champlevé enamel is created with indented areas which are carved or cast into the metal and then filled with the enamel.
