New Testament

Above left: the Annunciation. Above right: the Nativity.

Above left: Presentation at the temple. Above right: the Last Supper. As with older images, fish, not lamb for supper.
Above left: Christ before Pilate. Above right, the Crucifixion. It is interesting to compare this with the second version below. On either side of Christ are Longinus, with the spear, and Stephaton, with the sponge. Soldiers stand alongside them. There are three other heads, but who they represent is not clear; possibly the lower figures are john and the Virgin Mary, as in the image below.
A simpler version of the crucifixion above left, with the Virgin Mary and John on either side of Christ. Above right is an image of the resurrection, with the sleeping soldiers below and angels on either side.
