The Dead Christ with Angels

This panel formed a lunette above the central panel of an altarpiece, showing the Baptism of Christ. Together they formed the altarpiece at the Laderchi chapel in S. Domenico, Faenza.

Christ, wearing the crown of thorns and displaying the wound inflicted on his side during the Crucifixion, is seen supported by two angels upon a tomb.
