Frolicking in hansies

Berlin, February 12, 2022

Angels frolic through space, around Christ, around Mary, over the saints.
Holding a cup in their little hands, they try to catch the blood of Christ, which spritzes profusely.
And yet I see playfulness, little creatures in black hansies, frolicking around the adults.
Free in space.
