The Ognissanti Crucifix, tempera on panel, had been neglected for centuries.
This wooden cross painted in the 1300s has finally been restored to it's original magnificence (from a blackened state). It has now been definitely proven to be the work of the early Italian master Giotto di Bondone himself. Note the beautiful skin tones and the gold and lapis lazuli cross.
