The Resurrection

Rome, 1531
From an illustrated parchment in the Archeological Museum, Aidone, Sicily

Christ emerges from the sepulcher, right hand raised in triumph and left hand holding the red-cross banner. His wounds still bleed after three days. The lid of the sepulcher is not in evidence. One soldier watches while another turns away. The wind-swept cape is common in this era; the minimal cloth about his waist is less so.
