    Title: Christ Crowned with Thorns

    Location:


    After the flagellation ordered by the Roman governor Pilate, soldiers started to mock Jesus because of his nickname 'King of the Jews'. He was stripped naked and then dressed in a purple gown. On his head they put a crown made out of thorn branches. According to the Gospel of John, this is how Jesus was presented to the people (\"Behold the man!\""). Lucas Cranach shows the face of a suffering man who has accepted his fate. A few lines of blood show that the thorns must have stuck deep into the skin. Experts say this portrait refers to early Netherlandish art by Van Eyck cum suis."
