Our Lady of Mercy

Church of Santa Giustina, Padua

The artist includes the crowd of supplicants gathered around the Virgin, but without the cape with which she is usually shown to shelter them. As usual, angels place a crown on her head. The inscription asks the viewers to pray for the supplicants who look to the Virgin from TARTARA (i.e. Purgatory).
