E38 – Parable of the sower
“A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path; it was trampled on, and the birds ate it up. Some fell on rocky ground, and when it came up, the plants withered because they had no moisture. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown.” When he said this, he called out, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.” (Luke VIII, 5 – 8)
Delhez shows in this engraving a landscape as he saw it when he was on his way to the seaside resort of Sipe-Sipe. The highest mountain is called the Cuchillani. The hill of Cocaraya is positioned immediately behind the river. The first plan shows the three possibilities between the weeds between the stones of the road and the good soil with the prospect of the blessing rain.
This work was made in Cocaraya (Bolivia) between the 28th of January and the 10th of May 1937.
