Image Title: The Cross and Crucifixion

Scripture Reference:

Description: The cross of Jesus is flanked by angels, and over the cross is the inscription “INRI,” which abbreviates the title that Pilate posted on the cross, “Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews.” The instruments of Jesus’ crucifixion surround the cross, with a crest showing the wounds of Christ on the cross itself. The monogram of the artist, Christoffel van Sichem (1546-1624), appears at the bottom next to the water pitcher.
