This painted wood crucifix, datable on stylistic grounds to the early fourteenth century, is housed in Sant'Agostino in San Gimignano. The attentuated, painfully stretched arms, protruding ribs, concave abdomen, contracted brow, closed eyes, and open mouth show the suffering of Christ. The current polychromy, crown of thorns, and halo look as if they are not original. Photograph(s) licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
