  • About this Painting

    “Grace” is a short Christian prayer. A thankful phrase usually said before eating a meal. Saying “grace” is a term from the Ecclesiastical Latin phrase gratiarum actio,“act of thanks.” The act of saying grace before a meal is referred to by both Luke and Paul in the Acts of the Apostles and in Gospels

  • Symbolism in this Painting

    A brief explanation of the symbolism in this painting:

    In the lower center we see two harvesters carrying a heavy load of grapes which will ultimately become the wine, the Blood of Christ. In the borders of this painting there is a highly stylized acanthus vine. Entangled within this vine, are playful cherubs blowing their trumpets and generally having fun. Pea flowers seen in the middle right and lower left of the painting represent unity. Dianthus flowers, seen in the upper right top and center, are also known as Pinks. They are a member of the carnation family and are sometimes referred to as the “divine flower.”  Pinks are used to symbolize love, affection, gratitude, and admiration. Along the bottom of the composition there are blue five-petalled forget-me-not flowers that are symbolic of remembrance, true and eternal love, and devotion. In the top left Violas symbolize the Trinity because of their three-color petals. Angels represented by butterflies with open wings encircle the design following the star map, which can be seen in the background behind all the other elements. The butterfly is a symbol for the cycles of life, caterpillar, chrysalis and finally, the butterfly. The Bee and Ants that are scattered throughout the composition are used because of their industrious habits, as symbols of activity, diligence, work, and good order. The spots of the seven-spot ladybug symbolize Mary’s Seven Joys and Seven Sorrows.
