About this work


The scene combines Christ's resurrection from the tomb and his appearance in Saint John's vision of the day of judgment. Eight cherubim surround the risen Christ. Below, a skeleton (Death) is being swallowed up by the leviathan monster. Christ's pierced foot treads on a serpent coiled around the secular world. The tomb bears a ring-like design. A tablet contains the Ten Commandments, indicating righteousness of the law which is perfected by Christ to righteousness of faith

Legis perfectio Christus ad iustificationem omni credenti. Roma. 10 ...
