This icon depicts jesus christ our lord in a modern interpretation. The icon represents the dead christ lying on the shroud; the green color of his body is a reference to total balance, composed of harmony and love. On the brown background stand out two abstract elements of red color, also with a strong symbolic value. The first figure, an elongated and sinuous line, symbolizes a "spirit full of love" and is inspired by a quote from christ shortly before his death:'father, in your hands i give my spirit' (luke 23: 44-46).The line therefore is the spirit of jesus rising towards god, symbolized by the circle; in fact the circle is the representation of all that is, like the soul, the unlimited and god himself. The representation of the death of jesus therefore symbolizes an immense act of love, he opens the way to salvation. The painting was created following the traditional technique of egg tempera, combined with modern techniques involving the use of acrylic color and wide-textured jute. Being a static painting, jute creates games of shadows and lights capable of to give movement to the icon. The icon measures 40 x 20 x 1.5 cm (16 x 8 x 0.6 in). If ordered on commission the size of the painting can vary according to your needs.
