Christ still on the cross. Four women to the left of the cross, one stands and regards Christ, another kneels and looks up at the first woman while two others (Mary Magdalene embracing the fainting Virgin Mary) sit at the foot of the cross. To the right is St. John with hands clasped and held in the air and head tilted back. In the left background is a tree and beyond that a small cityscape.
