lamb bearing cross or banner, 'Agnus Dei' - symbol of Christ
11D1311


The Lamb, as a symbol of Christ, is alluded to throughout the book of Relevation. The lamb stands for sacrifice, for redemption, and alludes to John 1:29. The lamb was thus adopted as a symbol for Christ in early iconography. Shown standing, with a gonfalon, it can point forward to the coming Resurrection. The probable inspiration for much of this imagery is Jan Van Eyck's 1432 altarpiece in St Bavo, Ghent.
