Poignantly contrary to what was expected or intended
I wrote earlier this week that the famous photo of the three men at the Kotel in 1967 is IRONIC because the Jewish man in the middle is posed like a Christian, with his hat in his hands.
I did not say he intended to do this.
I did not say he did this deliberately.
I acknowledged in the original post that he may have been hot.
It is these factors precisely that make the photograph IRONIC, ie: Poignantly contrary to what was expected or intended.
(I make mention of this because too many of you, including my good friends S and Jameel, have misunderstood.)
