Finally, on the way home, my friend and I walked around the city and I took a couple of photos.
Gold, rock crystal, enamel
Spanish, 16th century
This reliquary takes the architectural form of a two-story altar, with a shell niche in the upper story framing enameled figures of the Crucifixion. In the lower story, a rock crystal cylinder displays a cross that was believed to incorporate a fragment of the true cross, and the capsule below contains a supposed relic of the sponge held to Christ's mouth when he was on the cross. The upper mount of the cylinder is engraved with an inscription that translates as "The wood of the cross, the alleviating sponge".
