The Road to Calvary

Follower of the Master of the Lorsch Calvary

On view at The Met Cloisters in Gallery 16

The power of this devotional image of Jesus bearing the Cross and suffering the torments of his persecutors is deepened by the German inscription, which addresses literate viewers directly: "O mankind, behold this figure; what God has done for you should be kept in your thoughts, for thus he gives you his heavenly kingdom."
