Easter Banner by Artist Deborah Melton Anderson

This banner, c. 1985 represents the resurrection of Christ. The wooden cross is represented by the lines around the gold cross a victory in the center. The arc represents the passage of time from death to resurrection. The white stone is rolled away with craggy mountains (red pieces) and the cave enclosed (black), and represent upward movement. The three pieces at the bottom represent the Trinity and create a rough circle including, air, land and water. At the very top of the banner, the triangular shapes of reds, pinks and oranges are the thorns of Jesus’ crown, transformed into the King of Glory and celebration.
