From the height of a cross, a crucified man, wearing a crown of thorns and a loincloth, looms over a dramatic landscape. Three heads with wings appear near the top of the cross, and a skull and crossed bones lay at its base. A vast prospect of distant mountains and a bustling port unfolds through the background.

The nude figures of four women, a man, a winged boy, and numerous putti stand in front of a curtained bed. The man stands near the center of the crowd and gasps, apparently in shock, as his jacket is pulled off by the young boy behind him. The woman seated on the bed beckons toward the man.

This is a preparatory drawing of a group of putti that form part of the painted decoration of the dome of Florence cathedral. The most striking figures are the putti in the upper corners of the drawing who support an architectural cornice and a pair of putto that appear between them. One of these putti holds a shirt and his companion holds three dice. Myriad other putti are rendered more lightly to give the impression that they are positioned in the background.
