Images for Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday

I’m returning to this project after a short break where I was doing a series that didn’t line up with the lectionary readings over lent.  There are a lot of images for this part of Holy Week and depending on how one approaches Maundy Thursday and Good Friday would determine what types of images one seeks (ex. footwashing or last supper on Thursday, stations of the cross or crucifixion on Good Friday) I have tried to gather some interesting images that I have not used elsewhere (for example see my poem Stay Here and Keep Watch)
