This painting gives us a glimpse of the power behind the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Jesus has been taken down from the cross and the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove sits on the nail. Notice the strongest light in the painting radiates out of the dove. Every other light in the painting bows its knee to the light radiating out of the dove. The suggestion of a goblet in the right wide blood stream reminds us of Communion. In the left wide blood stream, halfway down, the head of the spear that pierced Jesus' side is visible.
