This impressive life-size corpus features a long, flowing perizonium tied on the proper right hip, crossed feet held together by a single nail, and a sculpted stomach with nearly geometrical shapes forming the stomach and ribs. Christ's facial features seem at peace, his curly locks tumbling down his shoulders. All of these details conform to a type of crucifixes identified by Clementina-Julia Ara Gil (op. cit. p. 70; 74-77). She describes these as Type 2 crucifixes with 'Byzantine' anatomy and where the appearance of a royal crown persists. As the most numerous group within the surviving corpus of works, she lists several examples, mostly dating to the late 13th century. Compare in particular plate XXVI no 3, where the Christ figure can be seen to have originally worn a crown, and plate XXVII no. 2 where Christ has similar curls and a beard which parts in two strands. Due to the slight 'S' curve of Christ's body, the long perizonium, and the elaborate crowns on these corpora, Ara Gil proposes the possibility that these crucifixes were influenced by the Limoges enamel corpora of the 13th century.
