About this work

Description

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

Lettering note

Lettering continues: "Infernos aditus, et mortis claustra profunde/ Rupta salutiferi humano sub imagine Christi/ Insidiasque feri mundique venena colubri/ Ostendit celebrem Christi pictura triumphum. Honora patre tuum et matrem tuam ut sis longæ uus super terram quam domin. deus tuus dabit tibi. Non occides. Non mœchaberis. Martin de Vos inv."
