Passion Cross

Catalogue note author
Maria Działo


Sculptural Crucifixion Group with the Mother of God, Saint John the Evangelist and Saint Mary Magdalene placed on a pedestal. Passion Cross made in the second half of the 18th century, but before 1787, because then it was already mentioned in the church inventory. The presented scene illustrates the crucifixion of Christ on Golgotha, which is also emphasised by symbolic motifs on the pedestal - a snake with an apple in its mouth and the skull of Adam.
