CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
An acrylic painting of an aerial view of a resurrection scene in an agricultural landscape. In the top center, a large elevated nude male with his arms on his sides, his head and neck stretched upwards. Below in foreground on the ground in smaller scale are scattered plinths with human figures or symbols on top. Naked human figures are scattered in groups: laying, praying, holding signs, sitting, and walking, reading sheets from the ground. On the right center, a group wearing white robes and pointed hats march toward the background.
