Lovely. Obviously it's a crucifixion, but it might be a saint rather than Christ.
I'm wondering if it's Welsh.

Possibly carved for the front of a bible box/cover.

That's Fantastic, it's so similar, even the figures holding what appears to be a spear is in the right place. I know that the panel i have may just be a copy but it looks to be an old copy if it is !!!.
Great Detective work Naomi ... Excellent

Also could be Irish: cf. "Inishkea Crucifixion Scene", and "Celtic Crucifix", on this webpage: http://www.historicimpressions.com/Irish.htm
