The scene of “Forgiven” is Mt. Calvary. A despairing man has a mallet in one hand and a large spike in the other. Both symbolize that each of us is responsible for Christ’s death on the cross. Jesus Christ is holding up this broken man; at Christ’s feet are broken chains, representing the sin that was overcome at Calvary. There is a trace of blood on Christ’s hands, and in the place where the blood has fallen, lilies have grown.
