The instant seized is that of the expiration, when the sun is darkened, the temple rent, the atmosphere kindled with lightning--the tombs open and yield their dead. On one side is the Centurion, struck with awe, and seeming to say, "verily this was a righteous man;" on the other, the two Marys. One of them has her hair bristled with fear, the other, in adoration. The figures are whole lengths, the largest of them sixteen inches. Copied on canvas, from Vandyke. [P. 7.]
