114 REPORTS OF THE MISSION STUDY GROUPS GROUP 1.B: CHRISTOLOGY: CONTEXTUAL THEOLOGIES IN DIALOGUE Coming back from two days of exposure to the tough South African reality, it was the crucified Christ that many of us bore in mind when we were meeting for the first time in our mission study group. The linocut by Charles B.S. Nkosi (Ill. 1; 1976) appears nowadays like a look into the painful memories of the apartheid victims. It shows a person being tortured with electricity somewhere in a secret place. The picture is structured through three vertical beams, one on each side and the third in the middle. A crossbar is fastened to the two outer beams with screws. The center of the picture is taken by a black muscular male body being attached to the wooden construction with screws, a nail and ropes. The oversized hands are still under electricity. His head has fallen to the back. Quite a different image of an African Christ is the sculpture done by Francois Goddart from Zaire (Ill. 2). He depicts the Crucified as a mask 115 hanging on the cross. The crown of thorns is stylized as an aura with a star
