...And Another Red-Haired Jesus :D

It used to only be Judas that was red-haired, but it seems a few paintings of Jesus are popping up of late now too. This one is by the Italian artist Agnolo di Cosimo, more commonly known as Il Bronzino. This image is dated to 1530 and is titled Pietà. The red hair in the image is quite vivid, even the skin tones look gingery, and both Jesus and Mary Magdalene (I think that's who it is) possess it.
