"The pose in this painting is borrowed from the image of Christ in Cecco del Caravaggio’s The Resurrection. In order to cement the image as a domestic scene, I substituted a pillow in place of a cloud. The text on the wall is a line from Courtney’s poem, Physics with Rilke: The Life of Mary, which reads, 'Saviors should be mined from the hard material of the mountains'." - Brittany Miller
