Fresco: The Empty Tomb

Fresco from the 13th century in a chapel of the north transept, depicting the Holy Women at the Empty Tomb (Mk 16:1-8). An angel gestures to the tomb, in which the discarded shroud seems to float, and a Latin inscription reads: SYRREXIT NON EST HIC, "he has risen; he is not here."
