Springing Up to Everlasting Life

Rick Griffin was a preeminent artistic force in the underground comix and psychedelic poster era of the circa 70s, with excellent graphics and not making a lot of sense to the reader (at least not while the reader was soberish).

Griffin died in a tragic motorcycle accident, but up to that point he had a number of years where he had found his personal Christianity, and during that time created scores and scores of graphics with the Gospel of John as his theme. This is one of those graphics:
