Stations of the Cross Photoessay - 7 - Jesus falls for the second time

Jesus falling down is not a passive event. It was quite active because his fall was part of an intended result.

He was sentenced to die. When he falls, it's because the system, the people, the world turned on him. Christ falls because he was brought down. In Chinese mythology, the lion represents the Emperor. In my mind when using this statue in this photoessay, the Empire brings down Jesus, tearing his flesh and meat.

This statue is in the Louvre Museum, Paris (October, 2003)
