Christ crucified, closer. Note the sun and moon on either side, a habitual addition since the 6th-7th century.

A viewer informed me on some of the texts: surrounding Jezus: "Jezus Christus - The crucifixion". Under the beam to the right "He then said to his mother: See they Son" - "Mother of God" - "Lonchinos". Under thee left beam "Here see your mother" - John - "Aisopos" (name of the famous writers of animal fables - his name is like the word "(h)yssopos", which refers to the hysop stalk he raises in his hand.

Onder de rechter dwarsbalk: "Vervolgens zegt Hij tot zijn moeder: ziehier uw zoon" - "Moeder van God" - "Lonchinos". / Onder de linkerbalk: "Zie hier uw moeder" - Johannes" - "Aisopos" (naam van de bekende Griekse dichter van dierenfabels - zijn naam lijkt n.l. op het woord "(h)yssopos", de hysopstengel die hij omhoog steekt !)
