A Bruegel Sketch

"The Resurrection,” (c 1560) a drawing by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. At first sight, there seems no sign of Christ, but closer examination shows Him hovering above the angel, weightless in His resurrected body. The women, newly arrived on the scene, look up towards the angel, while the soldiers wake from their sleep and gather their wits as best they can.
