We read in Jn 19:30 (KJKV):
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

There are a number of theories explaining why Jesus may have bowed his head towards his right at the moment of death. One for instance, postulates that the Lord was acknowledging the “chosen ones” on his right (Matthew 25: 33-34). Another says that artists who depicted Jesus on the cross simply drew the best appealing look. Yet another states that the depiction had something to do with neuro-science and human receptivity to suggestion.
My question therefore is: Is there a deeper meaning for the depiction of Jesus' head tilted towards his right on the Crucifix? Inputs from any denomination are welcome.
