Description:

Set of four figures carved in wood, originally polychrome, that used to be part of a group of a Descent from the Cross, most likely compound of seven figures. It’s about the Crucified, probably later and very transformed in post-Romanic times, of Mary, Joseph of Arimathea and one of the thieves, most likely Dimes.
