Christian art and culture introduced a new spirit, a new conception of the universe and a whole new set of values. Christianity developed images after three centuries of limited symbolic forms. The miraculous powers of icons were the object of growing veneration; the image was believed to bring blessings, miraculous cures and protection from harm.

Holding a lamb and a shephard's staff, the fixed gaze of Jesus draws the viewer into the mystical presence. Born to a shepherd, his association with sheep and lamb is natural. These animals are as gentle of nature as the serene and kindly man himself. Blonde, curling hair fall over his shoulders, and the bearded Jesus has a captivating smile of compassion and beatitude. Surrounded by the grazing sheep and a calm landscape, he stands aloft, larger than life. The glow on his face has an extraordinary crystalline tenderness.

Keeping in mind the serene persona of Jesus, the artist has used soft tones of browns and ochres predominantly with the peacock blue of Jesus' wrap breaking a chromatic monotony. The line has no rough edges; even the hills in the background are gently ascending. The sky, despite having various hues of blue does not look stormy.

The painting has a sense of harmony and colour, but above all, a spiritual humanism.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
