A ghostly Jesus rises from the grave holding a gardener’s spade

Wait, what? Well, as the story goes, Mary Magdalene was so distressed at finding Christ’s tomb empty she mistook Jesus for a gardener. In this illumination, the spade is both a tool and a handle for the banner of the Resurrection.

Painted in 1465 by Bartolomeo Rigossi da Gallarate
