Description: 1912P23
Elijah and the Widow's Son, 1864

The elderly figure of the prophet Elijah descends down a flight of stairs on carrying a boy brought back to life from death. The boy's mother kneels with her arms held up in prayer. A chicken with a chick balanced on its back is in the bottom right corner. There is a doorway behind the mother with Hebrew writing over the top and a wine bottle set into the wall. The swallow using this as its home casts a shadow on the wall.
