Large sculptural group made up of five figures: Jesus who appears without the nails but still tied to the cross with the shroud and two men behind the cross who, climbing up the stairs, grab the shroud and lower Jesus. In the lower part are Mary with a very painful face and arms outstretched as if wanting to embrace her son and a little closer to Jesus, Saint John appears holding one leg with his other hand and the other waiting for his arm to descend. grab it. The pace has a curiosity: its wooden carriage with the red velvet fabric hems has an elevator that when it raises elevates the image with a hydraulic system to improve its visibility. It was carved in 2002 by Miguel Angel Rojo.
