  • About this Painting

    Agnus Dei, Lamb of God is a universally used Christian prayer. It is a humble prayer asking God, symbolized by a lamb, for mercy. Since the Middle Ages God has been visualized as a symbol by a lamb. It is also used as the title for Christ.  Agnus Dei, Lamb of God, appears twice in the Gospel of John. The first time 1:29, while John in in the process of baptizing at the Jordan, he looks up as Jesus approached him and he proclaims, “Behold, the Lamb of God, that taketh away the sin of the world” The second mention, 1:36, is the next day when John, standing with two disciples, “looked upon Jesus as he walked, and saith, Behold, the Lamb of God.”

  • Symbolism in this Painting:

    A brief explanation of the symbolism in this painting:

    IIn both the Latin and English version of this image the cap “A” and the cap “L” designs have imaginative, stylized, winged creatures. Both cap letters are flanked on either side by angels. The angel on the right is holding a flaming sword. Michael and his legions of angels carry flaming swords. Archangel Jophiel, also known as Archangel Zophiel, is part of that legion of angels and with his flaming sword, he protects those who seek the truth.At the top of the icon, underneath a cluster of nighttime stars, you see a very faint ancient star map. The map extends down to about the bottom third where the night sky changes into a lighter blue. It also can be seen faintly under the type. I have added a water stain to the bottom edge and other discoloration elements throughout the image to give the impression that paper has been marred, wormed, and damaged. In the upper left curve of the wood frame there is a bee that is an emblem of Christ . It is a reminder of his forgiveness, through correlation with the sweetness of his honey. A reminder of justice with its sting, and virtue because of its industrious habits of diligence, work, and good order. Birds are the symbol of the “Winged Soul”. They are used to suggest the spiritual, as opposed to the material.On both sides of the image is a golden highly stylized acanthus vine. In ancient Greek architecture acanthus ornament appears extensively in the capitals of the Corinthian and Composite orders of architecture. It also can be seen applied to friezes, dentils, and other decorated areas. In Christianity the acanthus leaves represent resurrection. The five petaled pink flower is used to symbolize life, love, and affection. I use the butterfly as a symbol for angels. The butterfly is also a symbol of the cycles of life, caterpillar, chrysalis and finally, the butterfly. The ant at the bottom of this composition is used because of its industrious habits. Like the bee it represents diligence, work, and good order. The spots of the seven-spot ladybug symbolize Mary’s Seven Joys and Seven Sorrows.
