Based on a dream. This work depicts the foretold christian apocalyps, more specific the opening up of the graves to regenerate the corpses of the dead, symbolised by the ascending crosses, however, they leave the earth behind, with bleeding open wounds where the crosses stood, which counteracts this supposed glorieus event.
Accompanied by an image of this work being a part of the exhibition 'Beeldenstorm' in the Abbey of Middelburg in 2017, the Netherlands.
