The golden ground of Messina's, Cristo morto sostenuto dagli angeli, takes you somewhere near the golden section or God zone for Messina. Later philosophy associated the vanishing of the horizon into a point to mean where the eye is taken to, to appreciate why later perspective seems to make a broader equation of post formal structure. One notices a building in the background to equal a derision of this equation but God seemed to be elsewhere for Messina, the faces are left blank here to suggest the painting is left unfinished. One wonders if the special place to hold the spirit would equal the face for Messina, although this would be not the place for future people who found the landscape to mean empathy for God. The mathematical equation for God can equal many places for different people.
