dc.descriptionSan Francesco d'Assisi, Monopolien
dc.description.abstractThis fourteenth-century wooden crucifix, housed in San Francesco d'Assisi in Monopoli, has been badly damaged and repeatedly restored: in the Baroque period, in c. 1970, and more recently in 2009, after a fire damaged the work. (One source reports that the arms and legs were lost and needed to be reconstructed.) The most recent restoration removed plaster additions that had obscured the original sculpture, as well as a wasp's nests and termites, which had significantly weakened the wooden sculpture. The body hanging low from painfully thin arms is typical of crucifixes of the time, which tend to emphasize the human suffering of Christ.
