This embroidered panel is from a dalmatic, a deacon’s vestment worn during the Mass. Panels in this style featured on dalmatics in Spain and Italy from the late sixteenth century on. This one represents Christ as the resurrected Lamb of God, standing triumphant over the grave and death with a victory pennant on a cross.
