Christ Study

I’ve been working on this for several months, and I think it’s done now.  It’s based upon an image of a painting done by Georg Cornicelius in 1888.  Apparently the original was lost and another version turned up, without the original components, and many folks like the later version more.  Here’s the version that I created using some iconographic elements, and under that are the versions by Cornicelius.
