Good Friday

By Philip_H
Christ the King, from a cross which is now lost, now in the National Museum of Iceland, Reykjavik.

The figure is carved from birchwood in the Romanesque style. It was originally painted and traces of paint remain. The crucifix hung in the church at Ufsir, in the north of Iceland. It is believed to be made in Iceland, and to date from around AD 1200.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on my last upload.

Best wishes,
Philip
