Stone crosses in Central Europe are usually bulky Christian monuments, some 80–120Β cm (31–47Β in) high and 40–60Β cm (16–24Β in) wide, that were almost always hewn from a single block of stone, usually granite, sandstone, limestone or basalt. They are amongst the oldest open-air monuments. A larger variant of the stone cross, with elements of a wayside shrine is called a shaft cross (Schaftkreuz).
