Set in a biblical context, this painting depicts a powerful moment when a woman, caught in the act of adultery, is brought before Jesus by the Pharisees - the social and religious authorities in Jerusalem. Seeking to test him, they ask whether she should be stoned, the legal punishment for such an offense. In response, Jesus bends down and writes on the ground before uttering the iconic phrase, "Let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her" (John 8:7). With meticulous attention to detail, Ricci captures the intensity of this scene, immersing us in the divine compassion and forgiveness that Jesus displays.
