Inside the praetorium, a bleeding Christ with a purple tunic, a crown of thorns and his hands together, is brought by a soldier before Pilate, depicted in a regal stance seated, facing forwards and virtually hieratical. The Roman procurator, holding a large staff of command in the crook of his right arm, looks directly at the spectator and stretches out his hands to a servant holding a basin and jug from which he pours out water. He is flanked by armed soldiers. The throne, covered in a blue cloth of honour, is made of wood and has two stone steps.
