Abstract

The crucifix in the church in Krzeszów was made in Gothic style. Stylish character of the sculpture is stressed, apart from the shape of the figure, by hands with straight fingers, squatted legs and long perizoma, reaching the knees, with spiral festoons on the sides. Similar crucifixes are located in churches in Skrzydlna, Mogilno and Żywiec. The Saviour was depicted as dead as it is a work of gothic Silesian visual arts of late 14th century, around 1380.
