...Good Friday....

Unusual, and very effective artwork...
Picturit: I think this is well done and indeed very effective.
Astrid.
this is a not too often seen view point of the crucifixion, Astrid.
Picturit: Indeed, it caught my eye and I looked at it for a long time.
Astrid.
That is a most unusual piece of art. Nicely captured, Astrid - and I love the detail window.
Picturit: Indeed, you don't see this angle very often.. I had to show all the nails 'painted' onto the canvas.
Astrid.
An unusual perspective, Astrid, a fine piece of art.
Picturit: Indeed, Frank. I was taken by the perspective and the nails on the canvas.
Astrid.
This is another time, Astrid, when you saw something I don't recall seeing at all. I'm so glad you preserved and detailed it for us.
Picturit: It was somewhere in the crypt of San Zeno and too bad I did not capture the sign with the write-up with it. I never thought this would come up this well worthy to be posted.

The symbolism of ALL those nails is telling, Astrid
Picturit: I was taken by the nails on the canvas. Who would think about doing this.
Astrid.
A very dramatic picture Lady P
Picturit: I thought so too. Who thinks about doing this.
Astrid.
What a strange interpretation. He seems magnetic to those nails. Excellent painting though.
Picturit: After I took a better look I was amazed and yes you say that right, magnetic to nails...
Astrid.
This has got to be the most imaginative depiction of the Crucifixion I've ever seen, but very artistic in its presentation.
Picturit: I thought so too, who would think about putting real nails onto a canvas with a painting like this... some of the nails were 'hammered' in.
Astrid.
A dramatic portrayal of the event.
Picturit: Indeed what I though as well.
Astrid.
Powerful stuff, with the rain of nails...
Picturit: After taking another look I was amazed.
Astrid.

The word "unusual" is used a lot in the other comments - because it is quite unusual. And those nails stuck to the canvas - most of them look a bit short for the job.
Picturit: They are far from doing the job to be done, but you 'get the picture' more strongly after seeing those nails and the cross... I thought the word 'powerful' comes in mind.
Astrid.
the name of the artist doesn't matter Astrid.. this image of the Supreme Sacrifice of Jesus is miraculous in my eyes....petersmile
Picturit: Indeed so, very powerful in my eyes. I would have loved to see other works done by the artist so, my bad, I should have taken a picture of the write-up... it was in Italian though..
Astrid.
Like you, I'd like to know the artist to see what else he or she creates. That's a wowza!
Picturit: Too bad I neglected to capture the sign next to the painting.. normally I do and I tried to find it on the internet, no results though...
Thank you, Robin.
Astrid.
