The Descent From The Cross

The Woman lying down by Halley’s Comet, going on space walk endlessly. I can’t help to think this woman whom I saw in the universe, is the Virgin Mary. (… .) (The arms of Mary, whose tears drop and dry, the arms almost like those of the dead, are thin, and they never stop looking for Jesus, lying down, bloodied.)

‘Regret for the Virgin Mary’ by a painter from Rouen: The bloodied thin body of Jesus being descended from the cross. The movement of descent of the Virgin Mary who extends her arms to throw herself on his body, draw me. This movement becomes earnest with sublation by the God of heaven and John who is supporting Mary’s body.
