Lords Coffin of Garamszentbenedek (1480)

Lord's Coffin of Garamszentbenedek (1480)

Not thought to contain any human remains, it is still wheeled around in Easter processions. The upper part was meant to resemble a Gothic chapel and represents the Heavenly Jerusalem, while the lower section is the symbolic sarcophagus of Christ. The coffin was created for a Benedictine abbey in what is now Slovakia by carvers who worked with the mining towns nearby.
