Editor's Notes


THIS COMMISSIONED ARTWORK COMES WITH A TEXT IN LATIN LANGUAGE THAT IS WRITTEN ON THE BACK OF THE CANVAS:

Plena doloris pugnarumque nostra tempora,
ut saepe desperet cor meum.
at spes fiducia amor – hi tres sunt mihi comites fidi,
ut, quamvis brevis vita mea,
memoria fulgeat mundus
quasi domus calida bonaque,
in qua libenter hospes eram et quae libenter me recipiebat.
sic licet me – Carinam – vestigium hoc
facere in illa domu,
quod manu oculoque magistri Simonis nascitur,
ac quo Iohannes Gerorgiusque Haganoae in Saxonia ficti sunt.
Hoc pium sit testimonium mundo,
quod animus fiducia tempus ars pecunia
aeque impensi sunt,
ad signum hoc perficiendum;
apparet in nocte huius vitae,
omni tempore astrum amoris Dei vigilare –
annuntiareque semper Dei filium,
qui semper nascitur,
cum nos in Deo congregati sumus.

TRANSLATION (GERMAN):

Voll Leid und Kämpfen ist die Gegenwart,
sodass mein Herz oft ganz verzagen will.
Doch Hoffnung, Zuversicht und Liebe- die Drei sind meine treuen Weggefährten.
Sodass, wenn auch mein Erdenleben kurz,
in der Erinnerung die Welt erstrahlt,
als wie ein warmes, gutes Haus,
in dem ich gerne Gast gewesen und das mich gerne hat geborgen.
So darf ich- Karin- hiermit eine Spur
in jenem Hause lassen,
die mit der Hand und Aug des Meisters Simon darf entstehn,
und durch den Jens und Jörg zu Großenhain in Sachsen ward ersehn.
Dies sei andächtig ein Zeugnis in der Welt,
Das Mut und Vertrauen, Zeit, Handwerk und Geld,
Warn alle gleichermaßen dagebracht
um dieses Zeichen zu vollenden;
Das zeigt, das in des irden Lebens Nacht
zu jeder Zeit der Stern der Liebe Gottes wacht-
und kündet immerzu von Gottes Kind,
das immer dann geboren wird,
wenn wir in Gott vereinigt sind.
