Double Corpus Crucifix

August Julius Lebensted

Bernkastel-Kues /  Doppel-Korpus-Kreuz   Bernkastel-Kues /  Doppel-Korpus-Kreuz


Sandstone crucifix with two corpora: one with the head directed to the heaven directed to the city gate, the other with the head hanging down directed to the city center. At the foot are two female figures, one of which represents the greatest female perfection, and the other shows that there is an escape even from the depths of human weakness.
