Abstract

The crucifix was made in the 1430s. Józef Dutkiewicz counted it to the so-called fourth group of the Cracow type, containing 17 sculptures, belonging to the soft style. This type was widespread in both southern and northern Lesser Poland, and even in Greater Poland, so it is difficult to determine the final place of production. The crucifix formally corresponds to the sculptures of the Crucified created in the first half of the 15th century. Two locks of hair arranged along Christ's face and a radial cross halo were added during the Baroque period.
