"Christ in the Realm of the Dead" is a fresco painted by Danish artist Joakim Skovgaard. The fresco is located in the Church of Our Lady in Copenhagen, Denmark. The artwork depicts a scene from the New Testament, in which Jesus descends into the underworld to proclaim his victory over sin and death. In Skovgaard's interpretation, Christ is depicted as a powerful, youthful figure, surrounded by the souls of the dead. The fresco is notable for its intricate, highly detailed style, which draws heavily on Nordic folklore and traditional motifs. Skovgaard's use of strong, linear forms and bold, contrasting colours creates a dramatic, otherworldly atmosphere that adds to the power of the image. Overall, "Christ in the Realm of the Dead" is considered one of Skovgaard's masterpieces, and a key example of his contributions to the Art Nouveau movement in Denmark.
