Madonna

The beautiful face of this Madonna still emerges from the now completely ruined church of the former parish church of Manigi, in the municipality of Cascia.
Located on the right wall, it is part of a lively 14th century Deposition, which has no comparison in other paintings for its originality and harshness of language.
The scene is resumed in the moment in which Christ is taken down from the cross: with a stake an apostle is removing the suppedaneo while the Arimathea hands the body to the Addolorata.
The Madonna in a youthful figure embraces the Son who is leaning on the mother's shoulder.
The Saint John is limited, as in the sculptural groups, to touching the left hand of Jesus.
Two angels in the air express pain in the Gothic way, touching their jaws.
Lower down, the kneeling Magdalene expresses her pain by screaming desperately as she raises the two long braids of hair with her hands; another pious woman is sitting in sad meditation with her hands crossed in slight abandon.
The fresco is still partially recoverable, at the link you can see how the church was before the 2016 earthquake, in the WS as it is today
