|Ecce homo||Man of Sorrows|
|Real story: balcony or stairs
(or without background), Pontius Pilate,
|Imaginably (Isaiah 53:1-3):
(or with open tomb), with angels
|Christ is still alive, and his hands
are tied, may hold sceptre.
|Christ is dead or resurected
and his hands are with stigmata.
Ecce homo are the Latin words used by Pontius Pilate in the Vulgate translation of John 19:5, when he presents a scourged Jesus Christ, bound and crowned with thorns, to a hostile crowd. It follows the Flagellation of Christ, the Crowning with thorns and the Mocking of Christ, the last two often being combined. The usual depiction shows Pilate and Christ, the mocking crowd and parts of the city of Jerusalem. But, from the 15th century, devotional pictures began to portray Jesus alone, in half or full figure with a purple robe, loincloth, crown of thorns and torture wounds, especially on his head.
