What a wonderful icon this is, one of my fav's

Michael Astley said...

Thank you, Ian.

Yes, it is wonderful, isn't it Anderson? Christ standing triumphantly on the trampled gates of Hades, with its symbols of restriction and bondage shattered and strewn all over, no longer having any purpose; Christ yanking our first parents from their stagnant states to fulness of life now that the Incarnation, Death and Resurrection have happened.
