Gospel in Symbols


I think this painting has a hint of art-deco in its appearance.
I’ve included text and a few symbols relating to the gospel. These feature regularly in my paintings.

untitled

ישוע : Jesus’ name in Hebrew
I AM : God’s name revealed to Moses.
Clock : 3 o’clock, time of Jesus’ death
cup : Last supper and Gethsemane
Y : my stylised representation of the crucifixion

Some of these symbols also have local significance in my home town, being fashioned after local land marks.
