Christ is deposed from the cross and into the arms of his mother Mary and the apostle John, while Mary Magdalene embraces his feet. On the left, the group of pious women cry, while on the right appear Joseph of Arimathea, Nicodemus and a partner. Above, a group of angels show the symbols of the Passion (the cross, the column, the spear and the sponge). Photo: Rabatti & Domingie
