07 Women of Jerusalem

8. Women of Jerusalem weep: Portobello Road near junction with Talbot Road W11.

Christ is dragged past a fruiterer’s stall where women break off their shopping to lament his fate. The courage and humanity of the women in standing out from the crowd, and risking association with one so cast out by society is enormously powerful. I sited this station in the street market where the women would be most on their home ground.
