The Mocking of Christ — Tissot
This image by Tissot depicts soldiers making fun of Jesus, blindfolding him, spitting on him and dumping water on him. It occurs right before Our Lord is crowned with thorns during the Passion.
"And the men that held him, mocked him, and struck him. And they blindfolded him, and smote his face. And they asked him, saying: Prophesy, who is it that struck thee? And blaspheming, many other things they said against him." — Luke 22:63-65
