The scene, though composed only of three sculptures, is one of the most expressive.
Jesus, exhausted by fatigue, falls under the weight of the cross, while a Roman soldier strikes him with the spear in order to raise it.
Behind Christ, a second character is intent on pulling the rope with which he is attached to Jesus, pushing the cross at the same time, to speed up the path to the top of Calvary.
