«The Processional Cross of the Cathedral of Funchal, a truly remarkable work of art, both nationally and internationally, was a gift from King Manuel to this Cathedral. But the identity of the artist who performed the piece remained unknown over the centuries.
This book presents a research effort over the last 15 years to find the name of this artist. Careful studies were carried out in national and international museums and libraries, examining thousands of documents and hundreds of writings. The elements obtained brought novelties that allow us to base suggestions for the authorship of this splendid piece of silversmithery, which honors the city of Funchal, Madeira and the whole of Portugal. »
