These traditional devotional figures at one time formed a Crucifixion group with a Crucified Christ (now lost). The ensemble very likely was mounted high above the entrance to the sanctuary of a church on a barrier called a rood beam, beyond which lay people were not allowed. Crucifixion groups mounted in that space symbolized the sacrifice and real presence of Christ in the Mass.
