First figure is the angel, who says: "He is not here, he is risen," and pointing to the grave clothes: "come and see the place where the Lord lay." Next to him is Mary Magdalene. She,--enthusiastic and loving in her nature, is the first to hurry into the sepulchre; but, perceiving the angel, she shrinks under a sense of her guilt, and falls into the arms of the mother of Christ, who, though full of sorrows, is conscious of her dignity and worth, and stands erect and fearless. The other Mary falls upon her knees in humility and bows in reverence before the divine messenger. [P. 6.]
