This incredible painting of the 17th century depicts the moment of the Crucifixion of Jesus. A unique and antique painting by an unknown artist, who with great mastery and sensitivity was able to interpret this biblical scene. Jesus is portrayed right in the moment of his death, with his head reclined and his face not expressing any suffering. The Pious women, in tears, give each other strength by embracing each other to face the tragedy.
