"Descent from the Cross" Tako
Beech wood. 20 x 20 cm.
The beautiful portrait that reproduces this decorative object is a detail of one of the great masterpieces treasured by the Museo del Prado, The Descent from the Cross (Rogier van der Weyden, before 1443). Many unknowns surround this painting, such as the identity of this woman who probably represents Mary Salome, half-sister of the Virgin and mother of John, whose face is reproduced in this original object of unique design printed with the highest quality, part of a limited and numbered edition of TAKO for the Prado Museum.
