E82 – Denial of Peter

795

Then he began to call down curses, and he swore to them, “I don’t know the man!” Immediately a rooster crowed. Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken: “Before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times.” And he went outside and wept bitterly. (Matthew XXVI, 74 – 75)

 

On the first plan to the left are the real witnesses of the denial, the servants and the maid. On the right we see again the figure with the crossed arms and it seems as if he wants to say ‘This had to happen.’ In the center of the engraving Jesus is seen bound with four ropes surrounded by his guards as he is led to prison. The prison itself is a church. The idea behind this is ‘The church prison of Christ’, something Delhez thought was quite daring when he made this engraving. The entire engraving is full of symbolism, such as the indication of the verses in two half roosters, church towers and weather vanes.

This work was made in Totoral (Argentina) between the 4th and the 31st of January 1940.
