The Sun and Moon representing day and night are also clearly visible on Raphael’s – Mond Crucifixion or Crocifissione Gavari from 1502–3.

At the foot of the cross is the inscription RAPHAEL/ VRBIN / AS /.P.[INXIT] (“Raphael of Urbino painted this”) in silver letters.

Interestingly, Our Lady is depicted at the side of the New Testament, Christ’s right hand side, while St John is depicted on the left hand side, the Old Testament side, apparently because he was the one who remained outside of the tomb on Easter morning awaiting the arrival of St Peter who was first to enter.
