This painting by Caravaggio is one that I have liked since seeing it in my art history class. All the men look so realistic and the way that shadows are used is amazing. The cut on the stomach is done very well. The finger poking the cut gives the viewer almost a disgusted feeling which is something i find very interesting. I was surprised the first time I saw this painting that the mans finger was inside of the cut. I did not expect that I only expected the men to be looking at the cut.
