"Refugium agonizantium", Préfiguration of the death of Jesus - rare representation of Joseph, protector of the dying and the Family, leaning on the Child Jesus and decorated with a cartouche of garland of flowers.
The painting includes a large number of flowers such as roses and Eglantines. The first Christians made a link between the wild rose and the crown of thorns of Christ, the five petals as a symbol of the five sufferings, and generally the flower becomes a symbol of the chastity of Mary and the Immaculate Conception.
