Lion & Lamb
I was commissioned by a local church to paint my Lion & Lamb for their annual Easter Sunday production.
In Christianity, the lamb represents Christ as both suffering and triumphant; it is typically a sacrificial animal, and may also symbolize gentleness, innocence, and purity. When depicted with the Lion, the pair can mean a state of paradise. In addition, the lamb symbolizes sweetness, forgiveness and meekness.
Painted with watercolors and acrylics, this 3’ x 2’ image was produced on canvas and was mounted as a standard for the play and later removed and displayed as a traditional painting.
