This carving made by Thomas Barreto in 1733 is in the museum of the Seminary in Pilar in Goa (India). It has obvious Christian references but also Hindu (see the lingam beneath the cross on the lower left part of the carving), also Moslem (the halo around Mary Magdalene's head might also be a crescent), and Jewish (the angel bearing bread and water is apparently a reference to Elijah in the Old Testament).
