About this item:
This illumination, The Resurrection, depicts Mary Magdalene encountering the Risen Christ. The colorful fabric of her dress and the word "Master" in Hebrew shown near her demonstrate the intensity of this experience. We see the Risen Christ only from the back, further reinforcing the profound experience Mary Magdalene had in being the first to recognize Christ. The background is suggestive of the empty tomb with others wondering what has happened, and three small crosses in the distance serve as a memory of the crucifixion.
