The buyer’s eyes are drawing you toward the bottom of the picture

5 3. The Coronation of the Virgin
She is the largest subject in the picture making her the focal point.

6 4. El Descendimiento Everything is encircling the image of Jesus. Even the dresses and the positioning of the people are enclosing him.
