This painting is Christ in the Realm of the Dead by Joakim Skovgaard. The story behind this event is that Christ descends into the realm of the dead on easter eve to release the lost souls. This is another one I actually enjoyed, because of it's choice of colors, lines and shadings. Once again Christ is shown with light around him (like Christ on The Sea) representing him as a light through darkness or a saviour of mankind through a sea of evil. The representation of Jesus Christ in this painting, while you can see some similarities in other paintings, it's also fairly different from others in this collection, making it an excellent selection for my theme "Representations of Jesus Christ in Art and Paintings"
