Curator’s note: An all-in-one scene, where crimson-dressed and thorn crowned Jesus holds the Holy Grail (a pop version), Virgin Mary weeping, a Roman soldier with a fierce face, a lion’s head -an indirect reference to the future mass executions of the early Christians in the arenas- and last but not least, Judas, the alleged traitor and Zealot collaborator. These were the last moments of Jesus’ earthly teachings. A reference to Bible and the Holy Gospels. In this paintings all meanings are mixed into one canvas, one of the painter’s favourite techniques.
