Another High Cross Scene
Here, also at Clonmacnoise, on the Cross of the Scriptures, below a scene of the arrest of Jesus and above a scene of Christ in the Tomb, this one is hard to identify. The three characters have halos, so they are "good guys." Normally having one figure's arms crossed over another means "handed over" but that doesn't work with three haloed figures. Perhaps they are the women at the foot of the cross, comforting one another.
