What a Hack! Stift Vorau

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*

On the ceiling Hackhofer created the painting of the Last Judgement. It is also known as the “Heaven and Hell” painting. It starts at the eastern part of the sacristy with the bright exposed heaven and the glorification of Christ. In this part Jesus is sitting on a rainbow circled by a corona of golden clouds. Outside the corona Hackhofer had painted a lot of saints from the Old (on the left side) and the New Testament (on the right side). The more the eye of the observer moves to the westward wall, the darker the colours and the scenes are. The sacristy is losing its natural brightness. The angels are carrying the tools with which Jesus had been tortured. The cross is pointing towards the western wall like an arrow. Tawdriness flashes jerk out from dark thunderclouds. In the end of the ceiling and the beginning of the western wall the colours change into red and brown and the picture shows the abyss to hell. 

Sincerely yours in Jesus through Mary,
