The explanation of the reverse: Reverse presents the moment when only the Virgin and John the Apostle remained by the Cross. Christ told His last words to the Virgin: "Woman, this is Your Son!". And then He told to His disciple: "This is your Mother!" (Jn 19, 26-27). "Performed!" (Jn 19,30).
The composition of the reverse. The figure of Christ with the Cross and the angels in the center of the medal symbolize the Cosmos. The angels holding the circle with the depicted figures of the Virgin and John the Apostle symbolize the Earth and simultaneously emphasize the importance of these two figures. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit defines the essence of the Christianity.
