Fragment of a Bowl

Late Roman

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 301

The inscription indicates that the bowl from which this fragment came depicted Christ’s raising of Lazarus from the dead. The magic wand in Christ’s hand, often seen in early Christian images, conveys his powers as a worker of miracles.
