Barocci exhibit shows his devotion, to art, reverence

When Christians pray and worship at Church of the Cross in Senigallia, Italy, they face a bold painting of Christ's burial. The picture depicts the crucified Christ being carried by St. John the Evangelist, Nicodemus, and Joseph of Arimathea. The Blessed Virgin sorrowfully watches and Mary Magdalen kneels in prayer. Three nails, marked by the blood Christ shed for our sins, and His crown of thorns jump out in the foreground. The others with whom He was crucified remain on crosses in the distant background.
