As the gospel relates, the soldiers of the Roman Empire who were guarding the tomb of Jesus, were knocked to the ground on Easter Morning. Here they appear to be reptilian. We don't see their faces but are taken with their armor and weapons, all of which seem to be rather stupid, useless and ugly. We might think of military displays all around the world: choreographed soldiers on parade in long processions of expensive state of the art fighting machines, guarantors of victory in these days of perpetual war.
