Christ: Flagellation -- Christ, decorated crossed nimbus, wears long loin cloth, and His body is covered with sores. He is bound with His hands to column on grass. Two tormentors flank Him and raise switches. At left, one, with grotesque facial features, thrusts his left leg on Christ's thigh; at right the other wears cap.
Scene with blue and gold patterned background, within decorated frame with cusped corners and foliate terminals at mid-points.
