Where to see it:

Float:
Polychrome wooden figure made in 1750. It represents the Descent from the Cross, with the Virgin, holding her dead son in her lap. She holds in one hand the head of Jesus and His hand in the other one. She slightly raises her eyes to the right, to the face of her son and has three tears on her cheeks.

Torcuato Ruiz del Peral

Interesting details:
This is probably the most unique float in Holy Week in Granada. Inspired by the Patio de los Leones in the Alhambra –reproduced to scale 1:12– and has four lights on the corners. Sculpted in silver, it has different Nasrid ornamental motifs, and depicts some chapels with silver decoration in relief. It was made in 1931 by Indalecio Ventura.
