Russian Icon - The Resurrection of Christ

The feast of the Resurrection of Jesus, called Pascha (Easter), is the greatest of the feasts of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Christ is shown standing on a Roman-style sarcophagus with his right hand raised. The slab has been removed by a winged angel who is shown kneeled on top of it with a palm branch of the Martyrdom in his hand. In the foreground, the Roman soldiers are depicted awoken and frightened by the risen Christ. The crosses are seen in the background on top of Mount Cavalry (Golgotha).
