The word “buried” which graces the center of this painting speaks to the fact that Christ’s earthly body was dead –
done – life had ceased and He was placed in a tomb. He had died the death of the criminal, was taken down from the cross, and placed in a burial chamber like every other person on this earth. The muted greens and brown represent death.
