Christ laying on the ground with marks of nails in his palms and feet. Two women and a man surround him. One woman is dressed in plain clothing and has a headcovering, while the other woman is dressed in more stylish clothing and has long flowing hair. Three stakes, two showing evidence of men being hung on them, are visible in the background, and a ladder is leaning on the third. Long spikes or nails and a jug are laying on the ground .
