E99 – Doubting Thomas
“Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!“ (John XX, 27 – 28)
Thomas touches the wound of Jesus and falls kneeling at his feet with his hand over his mouth. He thus expresses wonder and punishes himself for the words of disbelief he had spoken. The figure of Thomas, however, will always be associated with incredulity, but without remaining so. For that reason his hand closes the mouth, for it is usually the case that one is condemned by the mouth.
This work was made in Chacras de Coria (Argentina) between the 7th of December 1947 and the 3th of April 1948.
