During Easter the Christian tradition emphasizes the sacrifice of Jesus - and the sacrificial lamb is eaten in many parts of the world. Sacrificium is also inspired by Andrei Tarkovsky's film The Sacrifice, where the protagonist is prepared to sacrifice all he loves, if only a catastrophe may be undone. The St Matthew Passion, the leitmotif in the film, is another source of inspiration.

This photograph was published in Lozenge Magazine, No. 2 (2011). Sacrificium was exhibited in a group expo, Påsk och passion (Easter and Passion), at Gallery 3K in Old Town, Stockholm, Sweden, during Easter 2013.
