Christ Meditating On the Passion


~Location: Can be found in the Minneapolis Institute of Arts

~Significance: Made with oil on a panel; a new technique

~I find this interesting, because Jesus was nailed to across with a hammer, and the painting shows him sitting down next to a cross, with a hammer, and nails on the ground.
