Symbolism

  • Christ stands barefoot on Solomon’s portico at the temple in Jerusalem, and He wears a white robe, symbolic of purity, and a red cloak, symbolic of divine love.
  • His halo is of double thickness.
  • A serene Jerusalem landscape appears in the upper left edge of the window. In this moment, Christ is free from the shadow of the cross.
