Artist's Description

Life-sized plastic figurines in a Christian theme-park, Argentina.

Calvary (Golgotha) is the English-language name given to the site, outside of Ancient Jerusalem’s early 1st century walls, ascribed to Jesus’ alleged crucifixion.

Although the significance of the name is lost to modernity, Calvariae Locus in Latin, Κρανιου Τοπος (Kraniou Topos) in Greek, and Gûlgaltâ in Aramaic all denote ‘place of [the] skull.’

Although usage since the sixth century has been to designate Calvary as a mountain, the Gospels call it merely a “place.”

The word “calvary” is only found in the King James Version of the English Bible in Luke 23:33. The word “calvary” is not from the original Greek versions, but is a gloss from the Latin Vulgate.
