E34 – Jesus and Nicodemus
“Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God.“ (John III, 1 – 2)
Like two small flames, Jesus is followed at the bottom of the engraving by Nicodemus. He, whose wisdom is buried beneath the vast mass of stones, follows little Jesus to learn. On the first plan at the top right, we can see the symbol of this event, the little dove on the huge angel with the tables of the Old Testament. The reconstruction of the temple is derived from Georges Perrot (1832 – 1914) a French archaeologist and Charles Chipiez (1835 – 1901) a French architect. Delhez started from their image, but made a completely different version of it.
This work is priced slightly higher than the other works in this series, as it is the only one we have that is framed behind glass. If you do not want a frame, please state this with your order, we will then remove the frame and convert €55 (the price of the frame and glass) into 550 Fikpoints, you can use on your next order.
This work was made in Cocaraya (Bolivia) between the 20th of August and the 5th of September 1936.
