Master of the Lehman Crucifixion: 'Noli me Tangere'

A story from the New Testament (John 20: 14-18) tells how Mary Magdalene at first mistook the Risen Christ for a gardener: he is shown holding a hoe. She kneels before him and Christ urges her not to touch him, saying 'Noli me tangere'.

This is a pinnacle panel from a Florentine altarpiece of the 1370s.
