Description

Monochromatic image of figures in a landscape. There is a figure in the center, shown full length. His arms are attached to a wooden Tao-shaped cross behind him. His head hangs low and he wears a white shirt stained on the front (blood?). He has gray pants. There is rope wrapped around his elbows. There is a soldier standing on the left holding, his rifle on the ground in front of him. He holds the top of the barrel and wears a helmet with a spike on top. There is a group of women on the right side. The horizon line is low, about three-fourths down from the top.
