The icon of the Anastasis (Greek for resurrection)—The Descent of Christ into Hell—is a sacred image portraying salvation that was created and developed by Christian artists of the Orthodox Byzantine Church between the late 7th-11th centuries. It is one of the favorite themes in Eastern Christian Art and the traditional Byzantine icon for the Resurrection. Christ, dressed in the white robe of the resurrection, stands in triumph on a narrow bridge of rock over the realm of death. Jesus calls forth Adam and Eve from Hell and draws them out of their tombs by their hands, while at His feet are the shattered gates of hell and its keys falling into the abyss.
