Caption
Detail of a very large Crucifixion of Christ in the east window in Poitiers Cathedral, dating from the late 12th century. The top of the cross bears the sign "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews" written out in Latin. The two panels flanking the top of the cross are populated by the Twelve Apostles, who look up in awe at the Ascension of Christ at the top of the window.
