Having never seen {or even heard of} this painting, I’m at a loss for words to describe it.

“Wow!” will have to suffice for now.

{still staring!}

This painting appears to be a well-concealed secret!

As a Lutheran and afficianada of church history and its culture, I find this fascinating piece of art worthy of study.

If it wasn't for FR and its dedicated posters in many fields, life would be a vast wasteland, LOL.

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?
