The last thing anyone saw

John 20:17

Jesus said, “Go to my brothers and tell them, ‘I ascend to my Father and your Father, my God and your God.'”

Acts 1:9

After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.

In York Minster, I remember seeing the soles of Jesus’ feet depicted on the ceiling, surrounded by a cloud.

The last thing anyone saw of his physical body as he ascended!

I can’t find any sign of such a thing on the Internet, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

Here’s my version.
