Matthew 27:29 and plaiting a crown of thorns they put it on his head, and put a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him they mocked him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”

At this time of year, the acacia tree is in blossom and the branches with the sharp thorns that could have easily been formed into a crown like this.
