E98 – The ten leper men
“One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.“ (Luke XVII 15 – 16)
In their rough clothes and hiding their shattered bodies, the lepers stand before Christ. The only one of the ten who will come back, healed and saved is already recognizable. Behind the lepers one notices a kind of doppelgänger but with white clothing which must indicate that they have been healed. The clothing of Christ resembles that of the lepers, which makes sense because Christ took the disease. In the distance you can see a simple landscape with sheep and a shepherd.
This work was made in Chacras de Coria (Argentina) between the 7th of December 1947 and the 25th of March 1948.
