Triumph of Christ Over Sin and Death – Rubens

     The Risen Lord Jesus sits upon His tomb, holding the banner of victory and surrounded by angels. One angel plays upon a golden trumpet, another angel crowns Jesus with a laurel wreath, and a third angel carries a palm. With His feet, the Savior crushes the serpent, symbolizing the devil and sin, and the skull, representing death.
