The Astile Cross

Home / artworks / The Astile Cross

Silver-plated and gilded copper sheet, early decades of the 16th century.

The cross, produced in Emilia, derives from 15th-century designs and is made of metal sheet applied to a wooden shape. The quadrangular arms feature Evangelist plaques made with molds. The Christ in the center is a cast, then finished by chasing.
