Christ with thorns


This was never one of my favorite paintings until I took a look at the crown of thorns the anonymous artist painted. It's closer to what is shown in the Shroud of Turin that the usual circlets of thorns. It's become a great source for meditation.

It's very serpentine.

I actually thought the crown was made of snakes at first. I wonder if the artist wasn't trying to draw a comparison of sorts...
