The Play1997 by Honoré Sharrer

The young man’s pose and the tomb are borrowed from The Resurrection completed by Piero della Francesca (1415-1492) in 1465 (Museo Civico, Sansepolcro, Tuscany, Italy). The play depicted here is a passion play. Christ has not yet been crucified and is still wearing the crown of thorns. The Museum’s interpretation is that this painting is elevating the common man to Christ’s experience.
