Extraordinary ivory panel, showing the Crucifixion and the hanging of Judah. Part of four plaques, originally mounted on a casket. All of them carved in deep, almost three-dimensional relief, with scenes from Christ's Passion. This here is the earliest known depiction of the Crucifixion. #ivory #casket #crusifixion #Christ #britishmuseum #london #antiquemarks
