Notes & Analysis of the Artwork

Two shades of Green, meaning both life, death, and sorrow.

  • The darker green of the trees (Fuscous Gray), symbolizes the cycle of rebirth and death.
  • The lighter green of the uniforms (Viridian), tells of both the sorrow and greed of the soldiers.

The Pink (Chestnut Rose) reminds us of Christ’s divine purity.

  • Deep tone. The innocence of Christ’s conviction and the purity of his spirit.

The Maroon (Cedar Wood Finish) delivers compassion and care.

  • Only boldly shown on the soldiers, connected to the bleeding on Christ.
  • A warm hue delivers a comforting presence with its connection to Christ.
