Descent from the Cross by Correggio (Antonio Allegri)

Descent from the Cross by Correggio (Antonio Allegri)

This work, representing the scene of mourning for Christ, was performed by Correggio for the church of San Giovanni Evangelista in Parma. In addition to Jesus and the Virgin Mary, Martha, Maria Kleopova and Mary Magdalene are present here.

On the staircase, attached to the cross, we see Joseph of Arimathea. He has ticks in his hands, with which he pulled nails out of the body of Christ.
