I read on canvas by an author of the eighteenth century.

Apparently it is an eighteenth-century painting by an author that represents the theme of the Cricifixi n de Jesus Christ at the time when Longinos sticks a spear in his right side.

Heritage Notebooks. The Restoration of Personal Property in La Laguna. Island Council of Tenerife, Ex. City Hall of San Crist bal de La Laguna. 1995

A phytopathological study indicated that it was strongly attacked by fungi, as reported by the Department of Plant Biology of the Faculty of Biology of the University of La Laguna.
