I have rarely seen religious sculpture that expresses very much, but this one in amazing. With a HT to Rorate Caeli, I reproduce Antonio Castillo Lastrucci’s El beso de Judas. The expressions are amazing. The face of Judas is bestial and diabolical, whilst Jesus looks with sadness and a hint of surprise as he is betrayed with a kiss.
Tomorrow is Spy Wednesday, so-named after Judas.
