The three Marys (the Virgin, Mary Magdalene and Mary of Clopas, according to John) return from Jesus's cave, having found it empty. All carry jars of myrrh, with which they were planning to annoint the body of Christ. In the background are the three empty crosses. Engraved by Aegidius Sadeler II (c.1570-1629) after Bartholomeus Spranger (1546-1611). In 1570 Spranger was painter in the service of Pius V; in 1575 in Vienna at the court of Maximilian II; and in 1581 painter at the court of Rudolph II in Prague.
