Crucifixion statue of Christ in robes on the cross, 18th or 19th century, originally from the Collegiale Sainte Balsamie, in the Basilique Saint Remi or Abbey of St Remi, Reims, France. The 11th century, mainly Romanesque, church, contains the relics of St Remi, the Bishop of Reims, who converted Clovis, the King of the Franks, to Christianity in 496 AD. It was pillaged during the French Revolution, so many of the statues have come from other churches. The abbey is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Picture by Manuel Cohen
