Title:Jesus in the wine press
Notes:The image of Christ being crushed by the wine press/his cross, resulting in his blood becoming the wine used in communion/Eucharist, began appearing in the late medieval period. It is not a common representation but precedes the later representation of disturbing images of realistic Christ bleeding in suffering.[Photography Credit: Rut Blees Luxemburg, Jesus in the wine press, 2012.]
