This figure represents Christ’s patient suffering as he sat on Calvary, alone and unclothed. He is shown with long hair and beard, with his head in his hand contemplating the death on the cross that awaited him. This image of Christ is especially prevalent in Galicia in northern Spain. Galicians brought representations of Señor de la Humilidad in various forms to Puerto Rico in the nineteenth century.
