Description, including signature and date

This triple crucifix features figures on three crosses, the thieves arranged at right angles to the central cross of Christ. These figures are dressed in skirts of red ribbed fabric (see right). The crosses are plain except for knobs on the top and arms, all painted gold. The unusual feature is the presence of soldier guards at the four corners of the base. Each holds a spear.

The stopper is an elaborately carved cross with white tassles hanging from the ends.
