Unfolding before us like a cartoon strip are eighteen scenes from the life of Christ. The painting thus becomes a visual résumé of Christian redemption: the salvation of mankind through the death and resurrection of God’s son. It begins at top left with the Annunciation and the Nativity and finishes at bottom right with the Crucifixion and the Resurrection.
