St. Joseph (Crucifixion the Three Mary's)

I've posted a picture of this before, but I thought I'd try it again with a little more light (I brought a strobe). This is not an easy shot as it is located at the very top of the altar.

The Gospel of John places three women (The Three Marys), at the Cross. It states that Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. John. 19:25

Picture taken at St. Joseph Catholic Church in St. Joseph, Ohio.
There are various depictions of the Crucifixion, in this one Christ is nailed to the cross with 4 nails.
