Leaf from an Ivory Diptych


Not on view

Christ appears here in judgment, displaying the wounds in his hands and flanked by angels holding objects associated with his suffering. The kneeling Mary and Saint John intercede on behalf of the resurrected dead, rising up below. Among these is a pope. Below is the Anointing of the Body of Christ.
