The theme of the resurrection has been updated for the present day by Russian scientists and academicians Grigory Grabovoi and Arkady Petrov. Working with an amazing combination of high spirituality and science, they say that what we have expressed in the  Christian Creed is quite the Conclusion_cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58dimmer_bad5cf (Resurrection and eternal life), be now. That will and is already a reality. And there are reports of those who have passed away, who have returned, caused by Grigori Grabovoi. Of course, the question was asked who this Grigori Grabovoi was. Rudolf Steiner already predicted that the Christ energy would appear around the turn of the century. And Grigori Grabovoi points to this in response.

There are small groups here in Germany that work with the information from Grabovoi. I have been dealing with this topic since 2010. But there is no report of a resurrection here yet .

Nun hat die Bildhauerschule Scuola di Scultura die Peccia, Tessin, Schweiz, im Februar 2015 aus eigenem Impuls zu einer Ausstellung von Steinbildhauerarbeiten zum Thema Auferstehung eingeladen_cc781905 -5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_in the cloister of the Kloster Kappel event venue near Zurich. The sculptors mostly expressed the idea of breaking out or breaking through matter. My spontaneous view against it was the image of a return from spiritual levels of the universe into the matter of our world. Just as the firefighters used to slide quickly to action on long poles, the resurrected man comes down to earth on a golden ray.

At the suggestion of my wife Isolde, I signed up for a wood carving course in Peccia to realize this idea. Der Skulptur Auferstehung, begonnen 2015 und Fortgeführt im April 2016, gingen mehrere Kettensägekurse_cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b -136bad5cf58d_und Arbeiten an der Scuola ahead (variations on the theme of the world mother with children).

As with an earlier work, Matthias Schenk and his wife and the senior staff at Schloss Freudenberg in Wiesbaden have happily agreed to set up the sculpture Resurrection in the palace gardens. Together we found a harmonious location on the edge of the castle park forest, with a view of the Rheingau. Der Künstler Siegfried vom Hintersee schlug uns für die Vergoldung des Strahls der Skulptur eine witterungsbeständige Lösung vor - mit Blattgold - and has  directed and helped with the execution.
