Christ of St. John of the Cross

Details:

In this bas-relief rendition of Christ of St. John of the Cross, Dali interpreted a drawing by Saint John, a sixteenth century Catholic mystic and Carmelite Friar. The sketch depicts St. John’s holy vision of Christ’s crucifixion, but here, Dali has transformed it into a glorious depiction of Christ resurrecting into the heavens. Dali’s bas-relief features Christ crowned by a golden halo, while a ferry prepares to take his soul into the afterlife in the background. Dali drew himself standing to the right of the cross, but he is crippled, requiring a crutch to support himself. Next to his self-portrait, Dali placed a child which maybe a symbol for the younger generation that can carry on the Biblical message.
