Resurrection Morn

(Resurrection ­Morn by Herbert Gustave Schmalz, 1856-1935. Oil on canvas; 1895.)

"On the third day the friends of Christ coming at daybreak to the place found the grave empty and the stone rolled away. In varying ways they realized the new wonder; but even they hardly realized that the world had died in the night. What they were looking at was the first day of a new creation, with a new heaven and a new earth; and in a semblance of the gardener God walked again in the garden, in the cool not of the evening but of the dawn."
~G.K. Chesterton: The Everlasting Man
