    the crossroads in Wehrkotten near Bechen - a fine example of the rather rare "Arma Christi" crosses in the region (depiction of Christ's instruments of suffering); The cross is cherished and maintained by the Biesenbach family. Depiction: Instead of the corpus, only hands and feet of the crucified, as well as the head on the cloth of the hl. Veronika; furthermore: the crowing hahn; the dice used to roll the robe of the Crucified; the 30 pieces of silver that Judas received for his betrayal; Nails, hammer and pliers; Leader and scourge; below a chalice with a host (description taken from: of crossroads, mills and sinkholes, Geschichtsverein für die Gemeinde Kürten and Umgebung e.V. (2009)
