This sculpture represents Herodes, son of the well-known Herodes the Great.
After Pilatos sent Jesus to Herodes, he questioned him, but there was no answer. However, the chief priests and scribes who stood there accused him with vehemence. Herod, with his escort, treated him with scorn and mockery, and, putting on a bright robe, sent him to Pilatos.
At the bottom of the statue, a message in Latin: «ET ILLUSIT INDUTUM VESTE ALBA ET REMI
SIT AD PILATUM», translated: «treated him with scorn and mockery, and dressed him in a white robe, sent him to Pilatos».
