7 Quick Modern Takes of Jesus As Lord, Friend….


 1

For the 7 Quick Takes Friday link up this week, I must share just a sampling of unique, well done, modern art depicting Jesus. I detest tacky, Christian art because when a truly talented artist paints or draws our Lord and he is also filled with grace, the results are stunning.

Truly inspired art should also bless the viewer , move our hearts and spirits.

Since “The Real Face of Jesus?” aired on the History Channel in the spring of 2010,  the Ray Downing Gallery has had requests from all over the world to make their portraits of Jesus available to the public. They have a whole series of stunning images.

To create these portraits they used the three-dimensional data encoded in the Shroud of Turin, as well as their artistic eye and experience to fill in the details not found in the cloth.

Jesus is a healer. The artist, Ron DiCianni, is a master of lighting effects, always incorporating heavenly like illumination in his work.
