Italy, Tuscan workshop, after a 14th century model Processional cross Cross with three-lobed arms with engraved decorations in gilded copper alloy and an applique figure of Christ cast and chased in gilded bronze. Cross : Height 53 - Width 26,2 cm - Figure of Christ : Height 14 cm Accidents, missing ornaments. Provenance : Certificate of Robert Montagut, 1983. Comparative work: Tuscan workshop, 16th century, Processional cross, Height 58 - Width 27 cm, commune of Modigliana, Emilia Romagna, Italy. This processional cross is inspired by a typology that is widespread in Tuscan churches and can be attributed to regional production that began in the 14th century and was still widespread in the 15th and 16th centuries, with variations in the iconography. The face of the cross presents engraved decorations in the background: in quadrilobes are represented two holy women, the Virgin and Mary Magdalene, in the lower part the mount of Golgotha. In the upper part a titulus Christi (erroneous) is surmounted by the Christ-like scene of a bird feeding its young. All the rest of the surface is engraved with geographical motifs with flowery checks, including the halo at the back of the applique figure of Christ with the long perizonium. On the reverse, engraved in the center, Christ at the tomb is shown at mid-body. The ends of the arms are decorated with the tetramorph. Four birds, including the one in the lower part, which is inscribed in the foliage, frame the central figure.
