The lamb is walking through the colourful stripy cosmos as if it were a lost child. The cross above its head evokes God’s Lamb, which traditionally symbolises Christ’s sacrificial death. However, the religious content in Klee’s work is controversial as the painter did not express a particular religious standpoint. The comparison of the artist and God, on the other hand, plays a central role in his writings. Creating worlds from the divine being is inextricably linked with sacrifice. The lamb may be an allusion to this.
