=========================================================

Pieta is one of the three common artistic representations of a sorrowful Virgin Mary.
A pieta (Italian pronunciation: [pje'ta]; meaning "pity", "compassion") is a subject in Christian art depicting the Virgin Mary cradling the dead body of Jesus, most often found in sculpture. As such, it is a particular form of the Lamentation of Christ, a scene from the Passion of Christ found in cycles of the Life of Christ. When Christ and the Virgin are surrounded by other figures from the New Testament, the subject is strictly called a lamentation in English, although pieta is often used for this as well, and is the normal term in Italian.

Although the pieta most often shows the Virgin Mary holding Jesus, there are other compositions, including those where God the Father participates in holding Jesus. In Spain the Virgin often holds up one or both hands, sometimes with Christ's body slumped to the floor.

Na prední strane horní cásti podstavce ve vpadlé výplni reliéfní erb – okrídlený noh, držící mec a jablko se dvema listy- U klenotu totéž, erb je orámován akantovým ornamentem. Nad erbem písmena JGAB. Na borních a zadní strane vpadlá diamantová pole. Nad rímsou horního dílu podstavce je ctyrboká hlavice se zavešenými festony a andílcími hlavickami na nárožích. Hlavice nese sousoší Piety – sedící P. Marii, která drží na klíne Krista, odeného bederní rouškou. Kristus má pravou ruku spuštenou k zemi, nohy pokrceny v kolenou. Panna Marie je odena v rasnatý šat, má roušku na hlave. Ruce má sepjaty nad Kristovým telem, hlavu obrácenou vzhuru, v hrudi má zabodnutý mec. Materiál – pískovec.
