A dynasty of sculptors from Louvain, the Bormans are considered to be the best sculptors of their time. In 1479, Jan Borman the father joined the guild of sculptors in Brussels. Together with his sons Jan and Pasquier, they worked for the European elite: clergymen, nobility and guilds. Their patrons included the Habsburg court, which held power in the Netherlands.
Christ is taken by soldiers to Golgotha to be crucified. To his right, Simon of Cyrene helps him carry the Cross.
In a treatment that emphasizes picturesque details and individualized attitudes, the sculptor puts his virtuosity at the service of the pathetic nature of the scene.
