Rembrandt, the golden-haired Dutch painter who had his golden age in the seventeenth century, brings together religious and non-religious objects and figures in Sacrifice of Abraham, an indirectly depicted anatomy picture. Isaac's naked body is a cadaver, and Abraham's knife is a scalpel used in the picture. There are divine and non-divine beings on stage. Abraham's eyes highlight his complex desires and the intense light in his eyes draws attention to the tension and a fear of existence that also blends with Rembrandt's own complex desires. These complex desires in the artist represents the fear that the story of the sacrifice described in the Old Testament turned into a completely different form in the New Testament; fear on the canvas.
