Baroque crucifixion wayside shrine made of red sandstone

This baroque crucifixion wayside shrine made of red sandstone, a tall shaft cross with altar projection and foliate ornamentation in the lower area, dates from the early 18th century. The capital is quite broad and has an angel's head with spread wings. The cross is still preserved from the crucifixion group, the accompanying figures are missing. In the upper part of the shaft there is an oval coat of arms surrounded by a garland of fruit with the initials "P K M" and a house mark with a cross, which refers to the builders, the Kinheim Zender and Sendschöffen Peter Kees and his wife Maria Starck. The cross refers to their son Johannes Matthias Kees, born in Kinheim on 13 March 1673, who entered the Benedictine Order as Father Oswald and was ordained a priest in Trier on 21 May 1701.
