Description

Swift illustrates the story of the Passion of the crucifiction as an eternal drama, instilled with references to the injustices and sufferings in the 20th century. Since the 17th century there have been 14 stations that follows Jesus from his condemnation to his entombment. This, the fifth station, depicts Simon of Cyrene who had been selected to help carry Christ's cross.
