The faces, especially, show the extreme drama.
Tom Wilson: Indeed they do.
That's very unusual
Tom Wilson: This is one of the fully restored "station" some of the other are not yet completed.

There are so many depictions of this worldwide, all with its own interpretation
Tom Wilson: This "Calvary" series seems to be in a class of its own!

I think this is normally number eight where Jesus meets the women.
Tom Wilson: In this "calvary" it is number 26! It looks as though the Lithuanians (who were Catholic, not Orthodox (apart from the Russian minority population) generally had more stations - "The Great Žemaičių Kalvarija Church Festival (Lithuanian: Didieji Žemaičių Kalvarijos atlaidai, Samogitian: DÄ—dlÄ—Ì„jÄ— Žemaitiu KalvarÄ—jÄ—s atlaidā) takes place every June. There are 21 Stations of the Cross in this town. Undertaking the station of the cross is a very important procession for a Catholic, it should be done often. It is one of the most important pilgrimage routes for Roman Catholics."
This is inside the little building?
Tom Wilson: Yes, it is, Mary.
it is a very good depiction.
Tom Wilson: A fine piece of work.
Very fine artwork Tom!
Tom Wilson: A powerful image
