Another interpretation of jesus crucifixion statue:
The most conspicuous is the jesus crucifixion statue on the main altar in the middle. Unlike the gorgeous baroque style behind other churches, this jesus crucifixion statue is simple, but noble. The method of this crucifixion is also different from common ones. Usually Jesus heads to the right (right is good, left is bad in Christian faith), Jesus crucifixion statue wears a crown of thorns, his hands and feet are pierced by nails, usually crossed by a nail, it looks like Just died. Most of the crucifixion sculptures are very realistic, so they give people a bloody impression. This jesus crucifixion statue feels like Jesus has not died yet, and is still praying like the Father (also asking for help), so his head is up. The legs were not crossed, but bent, as if struggling. According to the Gospel of Luke, Jesus said before his death: “Father! Forgive them; because they did not know what they did.” And in the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus said: “My God! My God! Why forsake me?”. Therefore, what I understand is both praying to God and crying for help in sorrow.

The meaning of the crown of thorns in jesus crucifixion statue:
The exquisite stone sculpture jesus crucifixion statue in the garden describes the whole process of the crucifixion of Jesus. The disciple Judas could not resist the temptation of money and betrayed Jesus, the son of God. After Jesus was arrested, he was put on a crown of thorns, and the Roman ruler ordered him to carry him on his back. The heavy cross whipped his skin with a whip with iron thorns. After Jesus was subjected to false temptation and subsequent scourging, before he was nailed to the cross, Roman soldiers “weaved a crown of thorns and put it on his head; took a reed in his right hand, knelt in front of him, and teased him Say,’Congratulations, King of the Jews!'” (Matthew 27:29; see John 19:2-5). However, the crown of thorns of jesus crucifixion statue is extremely painful. Compared to pain, the crown of thorns is more of a mockery. Here is the “king of the Jews” being beaten, spurned, and insulted by possibly low-ranking Roman soldiers. The crown of thorns confirmed that they were mocking, a crown, marble Jesus crucifixion statue symbolizing royalty and majesty, but turning it into something painful and degrading.
