The imagined deposition of Jesus from the cross after he has been crucified. "Pietà" is such an iconic form--I humbly add my interpretation to that history.
Inspired by Joseph Ross's poem "On Fritz Eichenberg's 'Pietà'" (in which he is responding to one of those iconic images), I, in turn, included his words in my piece. The poem is hand-printed on silk. (click through for text of poem)
