Minerva Teichert, "Touch Me Not"

Minerva Teichert (1888-1976), Touch Me Not, 1937, oil on canvas, 87 9/16 x 69 3/16 inches. Brigham Young University Museum of Art.

On the morning of His Resurrection, Christ appeared to His faithful disciple, Mary Magdalene, as she wept outside the empty tomb. His glorified presence illuminates the early morning darkness, marking a dawn of hope. Overcome at seeing the Lord alive again, Mary’s outstretched arms register her speechless amazement, as well as her intuitive desire to reach for Him. Christ gently responds, extending his wounded hands with a tempering gesture underscoring that she cannot handle Him now “for I am not yet ascended to my Father” (John 1:17), and commissions Mary to bear witness the He had risen.
