Master of Saint Francis: 'Crucifix'
On either side of the crucified Christ are the Three Maries and Saint John the Evangelist, with the centurion who recognised at the Crucifixion that Christ was the Son of God. The words 'Rex Gloriae' on the cross, mean 'King of Glory'.

This type of crucifix was often painted on both sides and carried in religious processions. It may also have contained a relic or relics in the round cavity seen above Christ's head.
