Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

I saw this face and the attitude of his body at a life drawing class and immediately thought 'Pontius Pilate faced with a momentous decision which he washes his hands of'. He is a Roman Governor, slightly fleshy and gone to seed, but still with the arrogance of his position.

Materials used:
