crucified Christ (in non-narrative context): Christ triumphing (with crown, head usually upright)
11D353


The standing figure, robed as Priest and King (ie wearing the equivalent of sacerdotal robes) is the Christ reigning and triumphing from the Tree, ie the Christ reigning from the cross. This is the figure conventionally known as the Christus Rex and favoured by artists such as John Coates Carter, when the devotion was quite new. Pius X inaugurated the feast of Christ the King on the last Sunday before Advent in the calendar in the early 20th century.
