Calvary Triptych (central panel)

Oil on wood
Cathedral of St Bavo, Ghent

The central panel of the triptych depicts Christ nailed to a tall cross, with the two thieves to either side of him, tied to their gibbets. They are surrounded by a crowd of figures and horsemen, and the city of Jerusalem is visible in the background.
