Crystalline spheres of salt water dangle from the face of Christ. The stunning actuality of his tears is simply one of many methods this portray units out to torment you with essentially the most painful, pitiful, direct encounter it might create with the struggling of the incarnate son of God. His eyes are bloodshot from grief and struggling, his redness reflecting the darkish blood that spills down his brow because the crown of thorns cuts him. Flemish painters found a uncooked eye for actuality within the late Center Ages that enabled them to create work similar to this, the place sensible bodily particulars are constructed as much as nightmarish depth. Bouts, whose apprentices or assistants most likely painted this in his fashion, takes this cocktail of the fantastical and the actual to a haunting excessive in his masterpiece The Fall of the Damned. This small portray (43.8 x 37.1 cm) nearly makes Christ himself seem like hell.
