Here's a reflection of what inspired this artwork:

Jesus was offered sour wine (vinegar) when He first went on the cross. He took a taste and then rejected drinking it. (Matthew 27:34) The sour wine had gall, which is a kind of sleep-narcotic, mixed into it. This gall was likely derived from the Oriental Poppy, and was then mixed into the wine possibly to make crucifixion more humane.

After being crucified, Jesus said ‘I am thirsty’. And this time, He took the same sour wine and drank it. Then He said ‘It is finished.’ (John 19:30) This brought tears to my eyes as I meditated on why He rejected it, then drank it in the end. I felt immense love with the holy conviction that Jesus did not want to be spared any ounce of pain. All of it, needed to be experienced, the humiliation, the physical torture, the pain, so that we need not experience them. He redeemed us fully, not just in our spiritual connection with our Father God, but all of sickness, humiliation and pain as well. Only when it was finished, then He drank it.

The Oriental Poppy was described to be lavender in colour.

"When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit."

~ John 19:30
