Notes:A section from the renowned oak woodcarvings in the choirstall area of the Cathedral of Amiens, 1508-1519. "The texts of the Assumption [of Mary, the mother of Jesus] apocrypha fall into two principal forms. In the Coptic form, Jesus appears to Mary before the Apostles have left on their missionary work and informs her of her imminent death and assumption." (Johnson, 27)
