Sacred Heart Of Christ by natamon Sacred Heart Of Christ by natamon
My version of the classic image of Christ called,'The Sacred Heart'. Traditionally, the image depicts Christ touching his wounded heart, on fire with love and surrounded by thorns. My version has this, but also, more ephasis on His sacrifice.

Poor Jesus! I guess he forgot to go to the barber's!
i am sorry for that, I was just messing around. Your style is so Renaissance-ish. I like it!

Thanks for the kind words. :) I like the idea sometimes, of giving Christ extra long hair...As for barbers of his era, I suppose they were out there-though it may be been more for the rich folk-keeping hair much shorter. I am sure someone out there trimmed beards and head hair with knives from time to time...Would be interesting to look up!

Even otherwise, I think it was plausible that Jesus had shoulder-length hair, I mean, in Middle-Eastern cultures, it was good to have long volumptuous hair.
Thanks anyway! And you are most welcome!

I really enjoy this work. This is a very stylized rendition of the Sacred Heart image. I can see how you emphasized his sacrifice, particularly with the bold use of colour.

Thank you for submitting this into the DA Catholic club, and as such an appropriate time as well! :]

Hi Danilee!
And thanks for your kind words. It is a delight to share my iconography with others-especially those who get even more out of it than a general, passerby. I try my best to express a little 'window of heaven', when I can.
Happy Holy Week, and Happy Easter. :)
