Paolo Uccello
The Crucifixion: Detail, St. Bridget

As usual the saint wears a black habit and white veil. Her left hand holds a red cross with a Eucharistic host in the center, while her right holds a flaming candle to her bare arm.

The flaming tip of the candle has faded with time and is nearly unidentifiable today. Below is a digitally enhanced detail.
