Sascha Schneider (German, 1870-1927), Judas Iscariot
…within a fantastical, unreal setting, the arch-traitor Judas - “chained” by blood-red brambles that encircle his naked body with its powerful, antique-style physique - is walking with his head bowed across 30 pieces of silver which, glowing hot, scorch his feet. Appearing out of nothingness before him is a vision of the Cross, whose stem diaphanously passes in front of Judas’s outstretched leg. Standing sentinel like an idol in the background is the Angel of Justice, armed with a sword.
Norbert Wolf, from Symbolism
