A9 – Palms
“After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice:
“Salvation belongs to our God,
who sits on the throne,
and to the Lamb.” ( Revelation VII, 9 – 10)
As often, this engraving has two plans. On the right we see Jesus seated on a throne. At the bottom left we see the procession of the palm bearers walking down a street in Jerusalem, from right to left to rise there and unite with the palm bearers of the other plan who sing before the throne with Jesus.
This work was made in Chacras de Coria (Argentina) but an exact sketching and finishing date is unknown, Contrary to what Delhez usually did, for this series – starting from A9 – he forgot to write down the correct dates and afterwards he couldn’t remember them.
