The female figure was at the time criticized for being excessively lascivious and because she was posing: the woman’s body, which represents pain, is in fact wrapped in a large cloth, softly abandoned on the catafalque covered by a drape and on the sarcophagus where the portraits of members of the Lugo family. On the scene, an angel dominates with an olive branch in his hand, a symbol of hope.
