The Holy Virgin Kisses the Face of Jesus Before He is Enshrouded on the Anointing Stone
(La Sainte Vierge baise la face de Jésus avant qu'il ne soit enveloppé par les suaires sur la pierre de l'onction)
Artist's Note: The Blessed Virgin Mary, attended by the other holy women, carefully washes and dries her Son's wounds before the procession begins to take Jesus' Body to the stone of anointing. According to Jewish custom, a body is wrapped with linen bands before being placed in a series of shrouds (white sheets). The last bands cover the face. In this picture, the Blessed Virgin gives her Son a final tender kiss with a calm acceptance of God's Will.
