Object description
The Flagellation of Christ, known as Christ at the Column, is a scene from the Holy Passion that is often reflected in art. The polychrome figure of the saint man is carved in full length. On the thighs of the holy man there is a loincloth knotted in front; his arms are behind his back, and his head is tilted to the right. The artist masterfully sculpted the muscles of Christ's body, in particular the joints of his arms and strained legs bent at the knees, as well as the bend of his head. The Savior's face shows a suffering expression, remaining calm at the same time. A tilted head, lowered eyelids, and a slightly open mouth convey the individual traits of Christ, as well as his emotional upheaval.
