Italian term or phrase: Cristo delle Palme
I guess it's an image of Christ with Palms that was very common in German medieval painting.
Thank you!

Palm Sunday Christ
Explanation:
I would call it that:
Palm Sunday Christ

I find a reference
Palm Sunday Christ (Donkey; white robe, purple cape). Hollow construc-tion; carved hair, painted eyes; fabric garments; donkey's mane and tail are real; leather harness; 4½'.

The material seems to be the same as the Resurrected Christ standing beside it, possibly corn- or cane-paste though the features are more standard and the statue does not seem to be the work of the same artist. The robe is white, the cape purple. The right hand is not raised in the traditional gesture of Palm Sunday Christs. Neither hand is visible beneath the sleeves. The face and the mount have been repainted."

Grazie Angela, ho adottato la tua soluzione, che mi sembrava la più neutra, comunque vorrei esprimere un ringraziamento enorme a tutte quante: siete davvero professionali e una fonte inesauribile di saggezza. Si trattava di una scultura (l'ho vista solo oggi) che raffigurava il Cristo seduto su un'asino in procinto, appunto, di entrare a Gerusalemme. Vorrei dire a tutte che ProZ.com è il miglior dizionario che esista (e soprattutto il più... umano).
Grazie ancora.

the entrance of Christ in Jerusalem


Explanation:
Bisognerebbe vedere il dipinto. Certamente la soluzione che ti propongo non va bene se si tratta di un Cristo con un ramo di palma in mano a presagio del martirio, ma se raffigura l'entrata in Gerusalemme può andare, a mio avviso.

Christ with palms and branches/with branches of palm trees


Explanation:
it is part of the iconography of Christ and we should stick to the visual element rather than to the meaning, modern or contemporary).
See
The great multitude of servants clothed in righteousness (white robes) have come to unity in praise, as they exalt Jesus as both Lord and Christ. The palms in their hands relates to AHosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.@21 The palms are also symbolic of the Feast of Tabernacles, Aand ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days. And ye shall keep it a feast unto the Lord seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.@22

Palm may create an involuntary and latent double-entendre in English, with Christ's palms.

scusa l'aggiunta


Explanation:
ho appena visto l'altra tua richiesta sul Cristo trionfante, e credo che le palme qui si riferiscano proprio al trionfo, le palme della vittoria (si dice ancora la "palma" è andata a... pure essendosi persa coscienza del riferimento al ramo)
