Photographer's Note

A Calvary is a type of monumental public crucifix most commonly found in Brittany in France.

The Calvaire is distinguished from a simple cross by the inclusion of three-dimensional figures surrounding the Crucifixion itself, typically representing Mary and the apostles of Jesus, though later saints and symbolic figures may also be depicted.

In some instances the Calvary forms part of an outdoor pulpit or throne.

Calvaires are to be found in large numbers throughout Britanny, and come in many varied forms.
