Abstract

The 16th-century sculpture of undetermined authorship, stored in the church in Harbutowice, depicting the crucified Jesus refers to the method of showing the dead body of the Saviour originating from the Middle Ages, emphasising the suffering and death. It is distinguished by the still partly gothic way of shaping the form expressed primarily in the densely folded, perizoma, blown to the side. The name "crucifix" comes from the Latin word "crucifixus" and means "nailed to the cross."
