The dying Christ, his head slightly bent to his right, his eyes open and turned towards Heaven. The perizonium is tied with a cord.
Delicacy of execution which lets appear with realism the musculature, the veins, the expressive pain of the face.
Very beautiful patina of Christ with reflections that tend to red.

The term Bagard wood is also associated with this production, in reference to César Bagard (1620-1709), sculptor at the court of Duke Charles IV of Lorraine who executed large church statues.
