Artist:
Deacon Eddie Moore
Medium:
Wood (White or Yellow Pine), Nylon hair, Brad, casing, finishing nails, Acrylic paint
Type:
sculpture
Date:
1993
Description:
The object is a wooden model depicting a scene of Christ (yellow), tethered to a guard (blue) and held on trial before Caiaphas (red).
Made primarily from wood this narrative scene depicts the Biblical account of Jesus after his arrest going before High Priest Caiaphas to be sentenced to crucifixion. Christ is standing, wearing the yellow garment while Caiaphas is in a seated position draped in red. This contrast in color and stance coupled with Caiaphas' authoritative pointing finger enhances the emotional tone of the work.
