The essence of Christian belief is that Christ came to earth in human form and suffered a human death for the sins of mankind. The large size of this panel suggests it would have formed the central portion of an altarpiece. Although the suffering figure of Christ on the cross is the main focus, the panel is filled with other figures that would have called to mind the Gospel accounts of Christ’s death.
