Modeled wearing gilt perizonium and with long wavy hair, arms outstretched, standing on blue painted half globe applied with three cherub heads, this sculpture is filled with a sense of movement reminiscent of the rococo style. It shows Christ in his triumph over death, at the moment of his ascension to the celestial realm.
