Dormition Abbey, Jerusalem
This beautiful scene depicting Mary's Assumption into heaven can be found in the Church of the Dormition in Jerusalem. It uniquely shows Jesus holding (a small, almost child-sized) Mary as He carries her up to heaven. In the lower part of the scene, her lifeless body is on a bed, surrounded by the mourning Apostles and disciples. In contrast, most artwork in the Holy Land depicting the earthly life of Jesus and Mary, Jesus is usually an infant or boy being held by Mary.
