Christ: Last Judgment -- Christ, nimbed, body draped with mantle showing wounds in hands side and feet, is seated amid rays on rainbow arc on clouds. He is flanked by Virgin Mary, nimbed, with joined hands and by John Baptist, nimbed, with joined hands, both kneeling. (Deesis) Below, souls emerge from grave, two with draped heads, one with clasped hands, one with hands crossed on breast, two raising arms.
