Panel 09-10 - Crucifixion with personifications of Ecclesia and Synagoga
Christ hangs from the cross, flanked by his mother and John the Evangelist. Conventional personifications of the new and old faiths stand to the left and right of the panels. The artist has gone to some trouble to emphasise that Christ's feet were both fastened to the cross with a single nail.
