This highly detailed altarpiece depicts the Passion, the events surrounding the final days of Jesus. Most likely displayed during major religious holidays, intricate carvings show the Crucifixion of Jesus and scenes from the Passion. Surrounding paintings highlight the ritual of Communion and a scene from the Last Supper.
