Giovanni Bologna invented two types of crucifixes that were widely disseminated through the reductions made by the Susini workshop: a Cristo vivo, and a Cristo morto that corresponds to this pose, the beautiful head sunk toward the chest. At least two examples of the Cristo morto, each about forty-six centimeters high, were produced by Giovanni Bologna in or about 1588: One was his gift to the convent of Santa Maria degli Angiolini, Florence; the other was made for the altar of the Salviati Chapel in San Marco, Florence.
