The King God is the oldest Danish crucifix and was found in Åby Church near Århus. The crucifix was made around the year 1050 - 1100 from gilded copper plates on a wooden core. It illustrates the medieval fusion of power between the King and the Church. The stylized figure depicts Christ as a victorious king with a castle-like crown on his head. He is clad in kingly robes and placed on a modern cross. The Danish National Museum received the original in 1870. The copy is made from gilded resin with a loop for hanging. It is in the original size.
