Pretty phenomenal effects with the lighting and the water reflections. Background is incredible, robes are awesome and life-like. Nice piece. Now for little detail that might offend some... If it does I'm sorry, I'm just pointing out something that I find accurate and thoughtful: you put the nail holes in the wrists vice the palms! I've learned this is a much more likely/realistic location to use when someone was crucified. A person's body weight would easily rip the soft skin between the hand bones pretty quickly (or criminals could do it themselves in an escape attempt) and the person could fall to the ground, doing severe damage to his feet in the process and probably causing even more suffering. Whereas the wrist bone would hold them up long enough to, well, get the intended job done. I've seen very few paintings of Jesus that actually took this into consideration. More kudos.

Not necessarily. The key to unlocking that potential mystery is the original language used (Greek). The original Greek word used in these scriptures was ?e?? (or transliterated as “cheir”).
This word is used in the Greek very often to not only mean “hand,” but it can mean anything in proximity to the hand (fingers, the wrist, etc.). So this word could easily have meant wrist, hand, or finger. Especially considering the fact that he would have been pierced just below the hand where the ulna and radius bone meet.
Therefore, it would not be inaccurate scripturally to assume the Greek word used could have referred to his wrist. There are several instances, where wrist is translated from “?e??” in books such as the septuagint.

We may never know for sure until Jesus himself returns. It could have been his hands, or it could have been his wrists.

I'm going along with the general consensus here this is magnificently rendered...the use of crepuscular rays as the light from Heaven enveloping Jesus is the perfect background! :-) wonderful!
