Christ carrying the Cross (Richier)

Christ carrying the Cross (French: Le Christ Portant Sa Croix) is a 15th century polychrome and oak sculpture attributed to the French sculptor Ligier Richier in the Église de Saint-Laurent in Pont à Mousson in Meurthe-et-Moselle.[1] It is thought to have come from the chapel of "Mount Olive" erected by Philippe de Gueldres in the garden of the Clarisses monastery in Pont-à-Mousson.[2]
