The Entombment of Christ - seventeenth century Italian School

Oil on canvas.
Christ is represented here at the center, front and back to the entrance of the cave which is its tomb.
While some followers brandishing torches to illuminate the cavity, others carry it to his grave.
The procession is accompanied by Mary in prayer dressed in blue and Mary Magdalene, who deplored, gently takes the arms of Jesus.
The composition places the viewer at the bottom of the cave letting appear a mountainous landscape in the background.
The painter, inserting the scene in a feigned oval, increases the mystical dimension of his painting.
In Christian iconography, the Burial in the Tomb is the final episode of the Passion of Christ.
