E43 – 1st Multiplication of breads & fish
“And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.” (Matthew XIV, 19)
The entire engraving is dominated by the way of bread, the white road that runs from the hands of Jesus, past the joinery, the hut, the village, the town, the medieval castle, the industrial city and finally in the distance the big city , further and further away from Jesus according to the complicated life that characterizes these places. One by one the multiplied loaves fall from the hand of Christ. In the other hand he holds the two fish. The apostles pick up the loaves and fill the baskets with them. In their left hand they carry three fish. At the bottom of the meadow are those who accompanied Jesus and did not count on the coming night. Everyone was satisfied, but the gospel continues in time and so we see the white road of the host continuing to all the previously mentioned places. A windmill seems to define the first twist of the road.
This engraving was drawn in Bolivia (Cocaraya), but was not engraved by Delhez until he was in Chile. This work was made between the 28th of May and 24th of October 1937.
