3 / 4
The face of Jesus Jesus is not covered by his robe, that the Roman soldiers had cast lots at the crucifixion, but by a cloth of the shroud. The artist focuses the light on the sore side, so that the face of Christ appears caressed by the shadow. The shadow, however, does not obscure the understanding and sweetness of the features of his face, which with the low gaze guides the hand of the apostle who doubted his Word with certainty.
