It is not known at what time Mary’s body was again united with her spirit after death and internment. No one witnessed the rising of her body from the earth on its flight heavenward. It may have been in the midst of multitudes of angels and other holy souls singing her praises. Painters have pictured her so.
In this sculpture it is supposed that in the quiet of the night, by the power of the Holy Spirit, her spirit is again permitted to give life to her body and she rises in natural simplicity in a glow of light wrapped and hidden in the night.
