Ref  HB1  Ecce Homo

A Spanish devotional jewel, circa 1680. A high carat gold corded frame holds double-sided verre églomisé depictions of the Ecce Homo and the Mater Delorosa. Both portraits are covered by table-cut rock crystal. On the obverse is the Ecco Homo, his bleeding body wrapped in a scarlet cloak and wearing the crown of thorns. His head is surrounded by rays of light. Ecce Homo - Behold the man, was the phrase used by Pontius Pilate when he presented the scourged Jesus to the crowd before his crucifixion. To reverse is a portrait of the Mater Delorosa, Our Lady of the Sorrows, wearing a blue cloak and veil, also with rays of light around her head. The direct gaze of both portrayed invited the viewer to meditate on Christ's Passion. The pendant measures 1 and 1/3 inches by one inch. For similar Spanish devotional jewels of the period, see the Metropolitan Museum, New York and the Museum of the Hispanic Society of America.
