Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band, and they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe, and platted a crown of thorns and put it on his head and gave him a walking stick in his right hand, and, standing before him in the knees , and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! And they spit upon him, and took the reed and struck him on the head. (Matthew 27:27-30).

Crowning with Thorns Christ was a type of Him nasmehaniya committed by Roman soldiers. The crown, or crown, was an ancient symbol of power, rule and honor. Make it out of the bramble, instead of laurel leaves, which was used by the Romans for weaving wreaths heroes and poets, was another act nasmehaniya over Christ.

This type of iconographic image of Christ is more prevalent in the Catholic tradition than the Orthodox.
