Eleousa: “she who shows pity". The main feature of this composition is the tender relationship between mother and child.

The look of the mother of God is clearly saddened, but resigned: she knows that the suffering of her son is inevitable, and tenderly reaches her comforting hand. Because her son with took on the suffering of humanity with his death on the cross, it in this way she is the loving comforting person for all people in need.
