Signs of the End of the World

Instruments of the Passion

At the centre Christ, on a rainbow and exuding rays of lght, displays the wounds of the Crucifixion, is surrounded by an angel with a crown above (50) and 2 cherubims (49 & 51), and below three of the dead resurrecting at Last Judgement (52-54)
