Easter Eve - Deposition by Raphael



This beautiful and emotional scene is painted by Raphael in 1507.  We see Christ being taken down from the cross.  Mary, his mother, is to the right of the painting, eyes closed, falling into the other women's arms. Mary Magdalene is holding his hand and looking sick with grief. 
The painting is upstairs in the small, but wonderful Galleria Borghese in Rome.

Påskeaften:
"Nedtagelsen fra korset." Malt i 1507, av Rafael. Vi ser Kristus bli tatt ned fra korset. Maria, hans mor er til høyre i bildet, med lukkede øyne, faller sammen i armene på de andre kvinnene. Maria Magdalena holder hånden hans, med et blikk fullt av sorg.
Bildet henger i det lille, men vidunderlige Borghese-galleriet i Roma.
