The Crucifixion and the Deposition of Christ

1460-65
Bronze
San Lorenzo, Florence

The depictions of the two central events from the Crucifixion and Deposition are placed side by side to form a long side of the Passion Pulpit. The reliefs are extraordinary in their expressionistic, occasionally violent, portrayal of these events.
