At the center of the Main Altar in the Herrgottskirche in Creglingen is a very expressive crucifixion scene, which in no way attempts to sterilize the cruelty of the event. On the side panels are on the left Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane and the way to Golgotha, and on the right the entombment and the resurrection. The high altar is also topped by Christ as Man of Sorrows flanked by two angels with the instruments of torture. On the predella are three carved figures. From left: St Christopher carrying Christ, St Anna embracing Mary and Jesus, and St Andreas.
