Cross - Styles and Influences
In the early 13th c. the Latin cross with rectangular widening on the ends became the standard shape. Following the iconographic arrangement of certain figures, the front and the back of the cross are clearly separated. The figure of Christ dominates the centre front. His body is slightly S-shaped at the waist which presages the coming Gothic style, while the image of the crucified Christ with a crown on His head is still in the Romanesque tradition tracing the connection between Christ crucified and Christ the King.
