Ang Kiukok made several renditions of Jesus Christ throughout his lifetime, particularly scenes of the crucifixion. The artist is known for his paintings expressing pain and agony, which were informed by his disillusionment in World War II and later, the alienation he felt during a trip to the United States in 1965. Like fellow artists in that period, Kiukok veered away from picturesque depictions of the landscape to convey the new, modern reality of his time.
