Engraved Serigraph with Raising of Lazarus

A beautiful work of art, this engraved serigraph represents the Raising of Lazarus. According to Orthodox tradition Jesus received a message that Lazarus was ill, and his two sisters were seeking Jesus’ help. When Jesus arrived at the tomb he was deeply moved. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance and Jesus told them to take away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said: «Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me». When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, «Lazarus, come out». And the dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Then Jesus said to them to take off the grave clothes and let him go.
