This light is not of Salome with James and John. It depicts the raising of the son of the widow of Nain. She kneels at the feet of Jesus while her son sits up, arms across his chest. The other figures at the right and left of the image are carrying his bier.

Editor's response: Thank you very much for drawing my attention to this image again. I agree that this does not look like Christ with Salome, James and John, and I am not sure where this interpretation came from. The figures do seem to fit the raising of the son of the widow of Nain, and I will change the entry accordingly.
