Saints at the Foot of the Cross


Fra Angelico depicts the women (along with the Beloved Disciple) at the foot of the cross. Mary the mother of Jesus  in her Marian blue is supported by Mary Magdalene with the loose hair and red robe and by the Beloved Disciple on the right and one of the other women on the left. I love how Mary Magdalene's halo appears to be on the front of her face so that we can see her long red hair (I guess).
