This finely carved Crucified Christ is datable to the early decades of the 14th century, when the type characterised by an 'S-curve' with bent knees was widely repeated in northern European sculpture. While the slender torso and knee-length perizonium relate to a Rhenish Crucifix in the Schnütgen Museum, Cologne (inv. no. A 932), the markedly emaciated stomach finds parallels in works from the Tyrol, indicating a possible Alpine origin (see Söding, op. cit., nos. 4-5).

The present lot is offered with a Radiocarbon dating measurement report prepared by the Institut Royal de Patrimoine Artistique, Brussels, dated 23 April 2018, which states that the wood from the sample dates between AD 1250 and 1300 (90.1% confidence interval).
