Symbolism in this Painting:
A brief explanation of the symbolism in this painting: Glory Be to the Father also known as the Gloria Patri, is a doxology. From ancient Greek, a doxology is a short hymn of praise to God. In various Christian worship, doxologies are often added to the end of canticles and psalms. This one is most familiar from the Rosary where it is recited at the end of each decade of the Hail Mary. It is a short declaration of faith in the equality of the three Persons of the Holy Trinity
In the border of this painting a highly stylized “acanthus” surrounds this composition. 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. Violas symbolize the Trinity because of their three-color petals. The red rose is a symbol of martyrdom, while the white rose is a symbol of Christianity. The blue five-petal forget-me-nots signify remembrance. The royal purple color of the iris is associated with the heavenly royalty of Christ. Grapes are the symbol of the Eucharistic wine, the Blood of Christ. The pink borage is seen a symbol for courage.
The butterfly is a symbol for the cycles of life; caterpillar, chrysalis and finally, the butterfly. Birds are the symbol of the “Winged Soul”. They are used to suggest the Spiritual, as opposed to the material. Ants and bees 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.
