Interesting painting, but not too biblical. According to all the Gospels the only male folower who stayed at the cross was John, the Evangelist. Where are Mary, Mary Magdalen and the “other Mary’s”? Is this a mysogynist painter?

This is hardly a simple depiction of the Crucifixion. What I see is a summary God’s dealings with man through the ages. It’s about how man is saved from hell. Not just on a group level, but on an individual level. I see the painter recognizing that he too is “washed in the Blood of the Lamb.” {to borrow from a hymn that we Baptists sing!}
