Christ: mocked -- With His hands crossed, Christ, unnimbed and blindfolded, sits on bench, on grass. Two men mock Him; one, with grotesque facial features, wears cap and grasps His blindfold.
Scene with diapered background, beneath lobed frame with filigree spandrels, all within decorated frame with foliate terminals at corners.
