Pietà

14th century
Museum of the Convent of St. John the Baptist, Müstair, Switzerland

Dressed as a contemporary married woman, the Virgin Mary holds a disproportionately small Jesus on her lap. The body is as taken from the cross, with the crown of thorns still on his head and the wounds showing in his hands, feet, and side.
