This ivory corpus presents Christ dead, Christo Morto, but not suffering. His head is gently dropped to one side and his straight muscular torso is not twisted or animated as in later images. The quiet contemplative quality of this carving has similarities with Italian late 16th century devotional paintings where sacred imagery is presented straightforwardly in keeping with the doctrines of the Council of Trent and the ideologies of the European counter reformation.
