Woman looking at painting titled "Man of Sorrows" by Sandro Botticelli's 2. Stigmata in painting ANNOTATION: Sotheby's auction house predicts a painting of Jesus Christ by Sandro Botticelli will sell for upwards of $40 million next week. Botticelli painted Man of Sorrows late in his career, around 1500 or 1505. The painting has been in a private family collection since 1963.  3. SOUNDBITE (English) Christopher Apostle, Sotheby's New York: ?"Botticelli is playing with time here with temporality. You're seeing Christ both before and after the crucifixion. So he's bound with the crown of thorns as he was represented by pilots to the people of Jerusalem, the crowd. But then you also have the stigmata in his hand and in his side, and he's sticking his hand into the wound in the side to remind you that this was part of the passion. But it's also after this takes place. So it's outside of time, this representation of Christ, which is, I think, very important to Botticelli to show the timelessness, to show that Christ, while human, is also outside of any temporal constraint."4.
