The method of mounting recti-curvilinear enamel plaques seen here is particular to goldsmiths’ work in Catalonia. The larger plaques represent the Betrayal, the Carrying of the Cross, and the Crucifixion. The heads stippled above the circular roundels are a fine example of this metalwork technique, which rarely was used in Spanish art.
