Description The scenes on this ivory read from bottom to top: the scenes begin at the lower left with the Temptation of Judas, the Payment of Silver, and the Arrest of Christ. The Crucifixion and Deposition occupy the middle level, and the Entombment and Holy Women at the Tomb are at the top. The architectural gables with pierced designs and rose windows resemble those of the great 13th-century cathedrals in and around Paris.
