Why this is a
Masterpiece

Relieve or carved images in relief depict the via crucis or “The Way of the Cross.” These objects portray holy images within religious scenes. In this work, the crucifixion scene is used to further the concept of the Holy Trinity: the Father, the Son, and The Holy Spirit (symbolized by the dove).

History of the Object
Part of a set forming an altarpiece or retablo in the San Jose Recollect church of Cebu City. The rest belongs to the Intramuros Collection which are currently on display at the San Agustin Museum in Intramuros, Manila. This item has been featured in Ayala Museum’s exhibitions: Treasures at Ayala Museum (2002) and Treasures from the Ayala Museum’s permanent collection (2006).
