Stone Table

The Narnia books by C. S. Lewis are full of Christian symbolism, with the central character Aslan as a Christ figure. The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe is an extended allegory. Aslan is sacrificed on a stone table as a substitute for a traitor. The next morning the table is split and Aslan is alive again. Substitute Jesus, cross, sinners, empty tomb and resurrection and you've got the Easter story. Andrew Becraft made this nice vignette of the stone table with the characters Lucy and Susan.
