This rare carving depicts the scene at the crucifixion of Christ, showing two groups of onlookers flanking Mary Magdalene at the foot of the cross (the crosses have been lost). Two of the onlookers, on the right, may have been associated with commissioning the piece. One, a noble dressed in armour facing out, holds out his right hand. Beside him stands a figure with a coronet and the letter ‘E’ painted onto his leg.
