The Resurrection of Christ, Paulus Willemsz. van Vianen, 1605

silver (metal), h 31.0cm × w 22.3cm × t 1.0cm. More details

An angel has rolled away the stone from Christ’s rock-cut tomb: the Risen Christ floats on high. Three of the soldiers guarding the tomb have sunk into deep sleep, while three others look on in wonder at the miracle taking place before them. The city of Prague is visible in the background; in this way the divine becomes part of daily reality.

On display in room 2.3
