Christ is Stripped

10 Christ stripped

10. Christ is stripped: Latimer Road looking under the Westway.

It is night in a quiet side street beneath the Westway. The two men strip another, jeering at the humiliation of their victim. The light has dwindled to a just sufficient ‘glooming’ residue. There are no witnesses. There is no intervention in the last act of the Passion.
