This is without doubt one of the world’s finest Baroque sculptures.

The statue is the work of the master Juan de Mesa, who was born in Cordoba but later settled in Seville. It was commissioned by the Señor Juan de Irazabal.

It portrays a larger-than-life Jesus dying on the cross, with the drama of the moment being reflected in the tension on the body. This is a stunning wooden figure presented as a free-standing statue, of extraordinary beauty, which provides a detailed study of the human anatomy and takes realism to its utmost expression.
