Christ is flanked by the Virgin and St. Catherine holding the instruments of her torture, the wheel and the sword. This panel was probably initially the central piece of a small domestic triptych. Christ is depicted as the Man of Sorrows with the crown of thorns on his head. He shows us his wounds (ostentatio vulnerum) and reminds us that it is through his gory sacrifice that we are redeemed.
