Resurrection Bonad

$ -- Sold --

Rare bonad from Halland, Sweden, circa 1820, illustrating the resurrection of Jesus.  On the left is Mary Magdalene with the red hair and Joanna, carrying spices to anoint the body, and on the right are the soldiers who have collapsed in fear.  In the center is Christ emerging from the sarcophagus triumphantly holding a banner with the cross.  Although the legend at the top cites the Gospel of Luke, the image reflects the later iconography found in Swedish bibles.

Tempura on homespun linen.
