In Christ Unclothed (right), Jesus is offered wine mixed with gall. The companion print refers to the popular anecdote that Christ's robe, which had stuck to his wounds, was pulled off so brutally that all of his wounds reopened. People begged to know how many wounds Christ had. The number, which was revealed to a pious female recluse, was said to be 5,490.
