The soldiers crucifying Christ, by William Hole

Without the help of Simon of Cyrene, whom the soldiers arbitrarily choose from the crowd of onlookers, He might have already fallen unconscious. But now, in the final hours of His life, Jesus is at last confronted by the implacable sentence of crucifixion. The Roman soldiers have already dealt with the two thieves with whom He is to be crucified and now turn to the “King of the Jews”, whom they nail to the cross, fixing a parchment bearing that legend above His bleeding head.
