Dirk Bouts’ The Entombment

imageI’ve been following your blog on and off for some time now. I’d be curious if any of your blog followers have comments on Dirk Bouts "Entombment" painting. It is a glue-size painting on linen depicting the entombment of Jesus, and was probably completed between 1440 and 1455.  In looking at the face in detail I see what looks to be an epsilon bloodstain like on the shroud.

This is a wonderful close up. of the face  Click on either image, particularly the close up below to see larger versions.

Thanks, Mark.
