Photographer's Note

Inside of the Abbey in Batahla, was this Christ in custody of two soldiers, I dont know exactly the reason of this, but looks so mistery for me and nobody was there to tell me about it, so if somebody knows more about it, please help me with that information.
I add some information about this place.
Thanks

Batalha's abbey is one of Europe's greatest Gothic masterpieces and is protected as a World Heritage monument. It was built in 1388 after King Jo緌 I made a vow to the Virgin that he would build a magnificent monastery if she granted him a victory over the Castillians in the Battle of Aljubarrota. An equestrian statue of Nuno Alvares Pereira, the king's commander at the battle, stands before the southern fa蓷de.

The exterior possesses innumerable pinnacles, buttresses and openwork balustrades above Gothic and Flamboyant windows, while the front portal is decorated with statues of the apostles in intricate Gothic style.

In the vast Gothic interior are 16th-century stained-glass windows of exceptional beauty, and in the Founder's Chapel are the tombs of King Jo緌, his queen Philippa of Lancaster, and of their younger sons, including Prince Henry the Navigator
