E97b – The wedding party
“Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.“ (Matthew XXII, 8 – 9)
The three large arches symbolize the trinity. The servants are angels, who went along the roads to bring people to the wedding. It is noticeable that their bodies do not form a shadow. The lower edge of the engraving is occupied by a ring of angels who drive the guests to the palace. The grape, the east and the winepress are therefore sculpted above the arches. Those who have passed through the gate have no shadow either. Inside, the Lord is seen stretching out his arms, blessing, above, the couple and those who enter and are invited to sit down. A group of angels approaches with food. Delhez has tried to make the light of the interior resemble the light of the churches. The next gate opens onto a landscape where one sees a fire, an excuse not to come to the wedding, and the threat of The Lord, whose invitation was despised.
This work was made in Chacras de Coria (Argentina) between the 7th of June and the 12th of December 1948.
