The drawing was done in honor to 100 years of parliamentarism in Russia. I found the photo here:

It was such a hard day for Nicholas, according to his diary entry on October 17th 1905.

Very good painting, but... that crown of thorns ...hm..
 I don't like this kind of exaggeration. And what do you think about this?

Personally, I find it ugly and practically blasphemous.

I think the facial likeness is uncanny; other than that it is creepy in it's similarities to Christ Jesus and therefore I don't like it.

I posted that picture exactly because I was curious to know what you all would have thought about it...personally, I agree with all your comments...it's indeed a big exageration, I have also seen other modern portaits of this kind, but this one it's indeed the most odd that I have seen. :- /

That Nicholas' painting is so weird!! I never though someone would associate him with Jesus Christ... I didn't think it was appropriate... thanks for posting it RomanovsFan4Ever, it's new for me and really makes me think
