This ivory carving was made ca. 420 AD. It currently rests in the brother museum in London.

You are watching: Suicide of judas and crucifixion of christ

From left to right, the carving depicts Judas hanging indigenous a tree. It then has actually a man and also a mrs staring at Jesus who is shown on the cross. Following to the cross is a soldier who has simply finished nailing Jesus’s left and to the cross.

This ivory carving is very significant. It was the an initial piece of art to show Jesus together a painless superhuman. Jesus is not hanging ~ above the cross, however he seems to be floating on it. That is displayed as a magnificent being who has overcame death.

I like exactly how Jesus contrasts with Judas. Judas is hanging native an obviously broken neck, and also Jesus seems to rise in the air.
