“They did not recognize him”_4th Station of the Resurrection by avonnhartung

Reproduction of original painting “They did not recognize him” 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. As in the reading we see the two disciples excitedly telling the apparent stranger of the latest news. There is much expression in the apparent movement of the hands and the closeness of the figures, the direction of the road leading to them, the dark repetitive shapes of the ravine pointing towards them, and the stones all indicate urgent conversation. The stark light also intensifies the feeling of urgency and importance. The dove, the lizard and even the flowers are listening.
