Arundel 83 f. 125v Crucifixion and the Tree of Life
Crucifixion and the Tree of Life
Description: Miniature of the Crucifixion, and the Tree of Life, from the De Lisle Psalter (Arundel 83 II). In the centre of the page, Christ is crucified on a slender green cross, from which grow twelve horizonal branches containing texts relating to Christ's humanity, passion and glorification. On each side panels enclose twelve seated prophets, with six additional figures in a row below the cross, each carrying an inscribed scroll. Underneath is the prophecy of John from the Apocalypse; at the top of the cross a pelican nests with its young. 
Origin: England, S. E. (London?) 
Attribution: Madonna Master
