The image was based on a meditation on Luke 24, a monologue of one of the women at the tomb on the Easter morning. The image sprang from a single line, a description of the woman dropping her jar of spices on seeing the empty tomb. Suddenly in my minds eye I was looking past bare feet, the broken shards of jars with their contents spilt across the path to the empty tomb with the stone rolled away and the powerful light of the angels pouring through the doorway. The image contrasts powerfully with an image from earlier this month depicting the same scene just a few days earlier in the story.
