Mosaic
Baptistry, Florence

In the southwest section on the left beneath the Christ figure the souls awakened to new life are rising up out of their tombs and being received by angels. This section shows, from the top to the bottom, God the Creator and choirs of angels; angels with instruments of torture, angels with trumpets; the Virgin and Apostles as witnesses to the Last Judgment; the blessed, paradise.
