Velazquez crucifixion

Diego Velázquez painted the crucifixion (Right, Cristo Crucificado), but modern-day Thomas Velázquez took it further by crucifying himself. BBC, Paraguay man crucified in public:
Protesters in Paraguay have staged a public crucifixion calling for a jailed former army general to be set free.

Tomas Velazquez, a supporter of General Lino Oviedo, popular among Paraguay's indigenous people, was tied and nailed to a cross outside the Supreme Court.

Mr Velazquez called on the court to review Gen Oviedo's 10-year jail sentence for plotting a 1996 coup.
