Ascension of Christ – Garofalo

This beautiful rendition of Jesus ascending into heaven was originally painted a Renaissance artist called Garofalo in the early 16th century. 

The Ascension of Christ took place 40 days after His resurrection from the dead. In this rendition, we see a triumphant Christ returning to heaven, while his apostles (apparently in differing emotional states as seen in the painting) remain on earth to carry out their missions of spreading the Gospel.
