the Church of St Mary: Funeral Procession of the Virgin

Funeral Procession of the Virgin

The Funeral Procession of the Virgin. Two groups of apostles carry the coffin by resting two poles on their shoulders. The coffin is covered with a patterned cloth and surmounted by crosses. In the center, three Jewish figures suffer after their attempted interference with the coffin. The story is told in The Golden Legend 2.81.
