This shows Golgatha. Having the skull shown in this way creates the image of what Macbeth + Banquo where trying to do on the battlefield very well. The skull has a cross, which suggests that in their mind,their doings where fine,even right, as they where serving their country + God. The reason this is surprising is because this was the place where Jesus was crucified, meaning that it is the place most against God. They where trying to create this on the battlefield, contradicting themselves.
Gal. 2:20 I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. #Bible #Scripture verse, Recovery Version Bible, quoted at www.agodman.com
"The eyes of the Inquisitor or the crucified Christ, the broad shoulders, thick dark hair, clearly delineated, as if on an illustration, oval face - whether the prelate, whether the angry angel, prominent cheekbones, a broad forehead, thin mouth, but soft lips and the chin of a stubborn man who is ready to engage in a fight." - Pascal Jardin's description of Alain Delon
