Description

Cast bronze. Lazarus props himself up on his lef arm, which is outstretched. His left palm is facing upward, as well as his right palm, which rests against his raised right knee. Lazarus's body is skeletal, and his facial features and extremities are elongated and exaggerated.

Not to be confused with Lazarus who was raised from the dead in the Christian New Testament, this Lazarus derives from the parable of the rich man and Lazarus, which was told by Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. According to the parable, Lazarus was a sickly beggar who laid at the rich man's gate and longed to eat what fell from his table. After Lazarus's death, he is rewarded by having a seat at Abraham's side, while the rich man is cast into hell.
