Today is Palm Sunday, or Passion Sunday, when Western Christians celebrate Jesus’ Entry into Jerusalem. The event is recounted in all four Gospels and marks the first day of Holy Week (Mt. 21:1-10; Mk. 11:1-11; Lk. 19: 28-40; Jn. 12: 12-19). As the first of the so-called Passion Scenes, The Entry Into Jerusalem appears frequently in Italian narratives where artists captured the jubilation of the crowd, who shouted “Hosanna, blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord."  Onlookers acclaim Jesus, who rides on a humble donkey in fulfillment of prophesy, and pave the way with their cloaks and palm branches. Artists typically show young boys climbing trees for a better view, a motif inherited from Byzantine art.
