The front of the cross is set with table cut diamonds in plain gold rimmed settings, and where the arms and upright meet at the centre there are stylised enamelled lilies, echoing those at the four extremities. The back is enamelled with a pattern of flowers and leaves in colours on a white ground. Spain or Austria, c. 1620. Click for source and additional commentary by Diana Scarisbrick
Shell cameo, mid 19th century. Inspired by Guido Reni's paintings of this subject which shows Christ being presented to the people, crowned with thorns and wearing a purple robe. The crowd instead of taking pity on Him, screamed "Crucify Him" after the Roman Governor, Pontius Pilate said "Ecce Homo" or Behold the Man. The expression on the face of Christ is one of extreme suffering mingled with compassion for his persecutors... Diana Scarisbrick
