“He has been raised!”_1st Station of the Resurrection by avonnhartung

Reproduction of original painting “He has been raised!” from the series of 14 Stations of the Resurrection,
“Via Lucis” by avonnhartung. The cruciform frame shows the nail holes from the Crucifixion of Jesus the Christ. In the first station we are confronted, as are the women who approached the tomb, with the feeling of other-worldliness upon seeing the angel and the empty tomb. In symbolic language we have the circle within the square. The square represents our present earth-bound reality, our orientation of north, south, east and west. The circle symbolizes the divine dimension of Eternity. It is also a symbol of the Eucharist. These symbols are maintained throughout all the stations except for one, which we will eventually come to.
