The Ligonde Cruceiro: Detail, the crucifix

Ligonde (Lugo), Spain

A foreshortened high relief of Jesus on the cross. He wears the crown of thorns and above his head is the placard ordered by Pilate. The corpus resembles those seen after the 13th century, with arms that sag slightly and a tied loincloth rather than a skirt.
