Christ the Bridegroom with the Crown of Thorns, acrylic on wooden board, 2004.

Special edition of the New Testament (on the occasion of the 2004 Olympic Games in Greece). An attempt to paint Christ in a manner of the artwork characteristic of the ancient erythromorphous vases, with red figures and black backgrounds. The only difference is in the eyes and in the green wreath, so that a significant antithesis might be accentuated. The eyes express great pain and sorrow, as if asking: “My people, what have I done for you, and how are you repaying Me?”
