A light-skinned man with long brown hair and a beard holds his hands next to his chest, palms facing out. There is a crown of twisted branches with long thorns around his head. Many of the thorns pierce into his forehead and can be seen under the skin. Long droplets of blood flow from his hairline. The man’s eyes are red and filled with tears, which fall down along his cheeks. Small droplets of blood can be seen on the man’s chest. In the center of each of his palms is a bloody puncture wound.
