Figures of Christ represented in scenes from the Passion are an essential part of Christian iconography and often show elements of folk tradition. Painted on wood but in relief, this representation of Ecce Homo belongs to the late 17th century. The figure of Christ with his loose cloak, bound but not yet crowned the King of the Jews, is shown full-length, standing on a round pedestal. The figure, which is almost a sculpture, is backed by a painted field of undulating foliage interspersed with simple quatrefoils.
