The Reprieve


Full-size work from the late seventeenth century, probably made for a private chapel or oratory of small dimensions and probably carved after the arrival of the image of Jesus Nazareno to the convent of the Trinitarians of Madrid in 1682. The image of Jesus Nazareno, after having already been presented to the people on the balcony of Pilate, bound, robed and crowned with thorns, waiting to take the cross to start the road to Calvary is usually known as Jesus Nazarene, Captive, Rescued or Medinaceli.
