The single sketches had been probably used as preparatory drawings for oil paintings: the man on the ledder at the left side certainly belongs to a Deposition as well as the mourning couple (Saint Mary and John) and the soilder with a helmet. The man shown twice in a similar posture can be seen as a bannerman, an interpretation which would explain the a raised right arm. A kneeling and praying man, similar to our one at the right side, is shown on the triptych (central picture) „Raising of Lazarus“ by Aertgen van Leyden, painted about 1530/35, preserved by the Stedelijk Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden.
