This 14th century fresco shows Jesus Christ being cradled by the Theotokos and Joseph of Arimathea as he is removed from the cross. Mary Magdalene and the other Myrhh bearing women hold his hand in this moment of sadness and reflection. Angels weep and look on at the death of our Lord. A twilight sky sets a reflective tone in this image.
I love this icon. The tenderness and love from those closes to Christ. They don't understand yet Christ has just split open the grave and conquered death. Anguish mingled with hope. Dark rich colors yet vivid and bright as light swallows darkness.
I treasure this icon and each icon I've ordered from Legacy.
THE ICON FOR GRIEVING
THIS IS the most profound expression of grieving ever painted. These are those who loved Christ, taking his body down from the cross. Even our grieving has been taken-up in Christ’s cross
