The Resurrection

Innsbruck, 1904
Stained glass
Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Savannah, Georgia, USA

This image departs from the tradition in having Christ emerge not from a sarcophagus but from a space behind him that could be read as the entrance to a cave. Another novelty is the attitude of the two standing guards, who appear to be taking Christ's blessing seriously.
