The features that struck me the most about the painting “Golgotha” was its mystical yet gruesome quality, a mixture of mortal impermanence and spiritual eternity portraying the dismal site of Christ’s crucifixion at the “place of a skull”, or “skull hill”, known as Golgotha.

Both chilling and awesome, the more I studied “Golgotha” the more I discovered some profound messages in its mist-enshrouded shadows.Beautiful Tapestries to Liven Up Your Walls
