Who's familiar with the Max Klinger crucifixion tableau, which has one of the few examples of a sedile in religious art?

I did a minor manip of it some years ago, improving some of the features :)

It has been pointed out that those figures in the background are up to something questionable . . . . .

It's an interesting image, I wish the figures were higher off the ground though. I always imagine that sort of plank sedile to be planed to a sharp edge on the top to make it extremely nasty to sit astride on. The two naked figures in the back are in my view an unwelcome distraction, I always prefer only those being crucified to be stark naked with everyone else present clothed, that makes their nudity something they would be acutely aware of to add to their humiliation. If naked guys were there amongst the spectators it sort of diminishes the victims' shame.

I assumed the naked men in the background were executioners. Crucifying is strenuous work, and the pagan soldiers who did it were not Jews, hence few qualms about nudity.

Yeah that is most likely a good explanation, however I still prefer in my own scenario that only those crucified were completely nude, they would feel the vulnerability & the loneliness of the only ones stark naked amongst a crowd of dressed (& armed) people.

In my male crucifixion scenario he is completely naked. He is facing the wood, with his ass on display for all the onlookers to see. The crowd is permitted to play with him, pumping his dick, the women penetrating his asshole with their fingers and dildos. The guards are female and they remark on his body and his bodily functions.

For those who doubt that Christ's executioners may have worked naked.

Madiosi-2021-110-crucifixion.jpg It's your body. Unfortunately the avatar image is to little for a clear cut out.
