"Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid." - John 19:14
I had to look it up. Hmm. It adds dimensions. I like this, of course.
Hmmm. I don't feel like looking it up; I wonder what reference you're making-(not much of a bible person..) the crucifix makes it feel like this weird circular end of the world gone back to eden- that in the crucifixtion (sp? hah) humanity could go back and rebuild; the water pouring out of the hills makes me think of noah, when they landed the arc...it's pleasant, soothing, and eerie...
Somewhere in this piece I can hear the cry of a pterodactil, the distant rumble of small falling rocks bouncing off of a mountain and the threat of something rustling in the grass behind me, and I know that dinosaurs exist here.
Very atmospheric, I love the mist, and the brightness of the grass and moss. It feels like the cool, misty morning of the hottest day of a heatwave. And you can feel that the two men in the picture have descovered somewhere new.
New worlds conquered; extraordinary grace guides the hand and eye to the heart and how can we deny? He who seeks shall find, and faith, underailed by worldly intervention reigns eternally. Thank God, Malboeuf, for He shines through your designs.
