The Lamentation over the Dead Christ with Saints is a painting of the Lamentation of Christ by the Italian Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli, dated between 1490-1495. It is housed in the Museo Poldi Pezzoli of Milan.

The composition is pyramidal, with tightly connected figures. At the same times, it evocates the shape of a cross, culminating in Joseph of Arimathea, who shows the crown of thorns and the nails.
