Jesus is mocked
In this image we are again reminded of the Temptation of Jesus in the wilderness, where he is confronted by the various passions. Here the persecuters of Jesus, like the masked figures of the Drama, who represent the different characters in a play, mock at Jesus who is blindfolded. He is the most human of them all, as his reality is not the virtual reality of mere actors in a drama.
