Lady Chapel Altarpiece

Detail of the Pietá panel

McKillop's altarpiece sits within empty niches of the medieval reredos in the Lady Chapel which was damaged during the Reformation. Representing the Crucifixion, Pietá and Resurrection of Christ, the subtle colour scheme and richly detailed figuration achieves a unity between the three panels while still maintaining a strong Passion narrative.
