Anselm Kiefer, Resurrexit (1971, pictured left) offers a different view a wooded landscape with a building barely visible in the distant clearing. In the center foreground, Kiefer has been replaced by a snake headed toward the building. A pinewood staircase is attached to the top of the painting. Some see this as a staircase to heaven. We learn that the building is the former schoolhouse which Kiefer converted into his studio. The pinewood stairs are the only access to the studio.
