Through paintings such as this, believers could follow the episodes of Christ’s Passion and identify with his pain and suffering. In the background, he collapses under the weight of the cross. Next he is stripped (lower right) and mocked (left); then soldiers cast lots for his clothes (bottom left). In an opening at upper centre, Jesus hangs on the cross.
