The Crucified Christ in the North Chapel

 

The crucified Christ is a bronze sculpture representing death.
 
The stained glass windows of the both the north and south chapels were also created by Arcabas.
 
On the shelf above is Adam's Skull, carved in limestone, covered with gold leaf (1969), it evokes the mortal rights.

The stained glass windows of the north chapel below, depicts Golgotha / Calvary.

You can see the three crosses and the instruments of the Passion and the crown of thorns.
