Description

Two men are lifting a slab in the Cave of the Patriarchs to close the vertical tomb where Sarah’s shrouded body can be seen standing, as Abraham stops at the entrance to look back one last time, before being taken away by other mourners.

The caption reads in the original French: Abraham ensevelit Sara (Gén., XXIII, 1-20).
