The crowd rages en masse, driven by their hatred of the truth, unbeknownst to them. They represent all of us who, before knowing Christ, are opposed to Him and His Word. Notice all the figures are deformed except Christ and the man to the right of Him, which in scripture is the one who chooses to trust in Christ. The skull on which the three are crucified represents the historical hill called Golgotha (“the skull”). The arrows embedded in the Christ figure are the curses that the crowd are yelling out. This piece is also called Rebellion because Christ is what a true rebel is. He was and is what is against what is called the "norm". He's against the establishment but for what is true and good not simply for the sake of being a wrench in the fan but so as to provoke people to act and follow, to clean up their ways and to truly know what it is to love, to know God. The crowd also represents rebellion but for the exact opposite reasons which include self, pride, hate and ambition, human nature all of which keep us away from God.
