Mario Vucelic, who blogs at Soft Pastel News, offered this post featuring Odilon Redon's Christ in Silence.

Of course, the crow means death, which was always the purpose of our Lord's incarnation - to die and rise again.  Christ is contemplative, holding the crow in front of Him.

Odilon Redon (April 20, 1840 – July 6, 1916)
