He is risen; He is not here; behold the place where they laid him.--Mark, Ch. XVI, v. VI. The angel in white drapery is seated on a stone at the mouth of the Sepulchre, in the gloomy depth of which can be faintly seen the grave-clothes lying; Mary Magdalen has approached, bearing the precious materials for embalming; she kneels with reverence; her first astonishment is supposed to be exchanged for a believing rapture, half visible through her mourning and penitential tears. The other women are near; they betray the lingerings of fear at the appearance of the Heavenly visitant. The early dawn is flushing the sky, but the landscape lies yet in shade. [P. 39.]
