Christ: Resurrection -- Angel, kneeling, hands joined, and Christ, rayed cross as nimbus, standing, partially draped in shroud, wounds visible, are on sarcophagus. Christ extends right hand toward angel and holds bannered cross-staff in left hand. Sarcophagus is surrounded by crowd of recumbent sleeping soldiers. In background, beyond hill, is landscape, including three figures walking on road (holy women?), horsemen, and city.
