Description The Man of Sorrows--the image of the dead Christ miraculously standing--is meant to call to mind various moments in the Passion cycle. Here it provides an emotional focus for private devotion. The ornamental festoons and cherubs, inspired by ancient relief sculpture, are characteristic of the early Italian Renaissance.
