Gift of Julius Landauer

Jesus is lowered from the cross into the hands of his devoted mourners.

Men have taken the nude Christ down from the cross. His livid wounds still bleed. Despairing women mourn and one reaches towards the body. A crown of thorns lies on the ground near a basket and a rope. Men remove a ladder.
